Sestak to Kane: ‘Many People’ Called

BREAKING: Larry Kane, the host of Voice of Reason on the Comcast Network in Philadelphia, just sat down for an exclusive interview with Rep. Joe Sestak (D., Pa.). Kane tells National Review Online that Sestak said “many people called him to dissuade him from running, just not with job offers.” Sestak also told Kane that he thinks the White House should back off from meddling in primaries and let the voters decide. On the oil spill, Sestak says the Obama administration has not shown an adequate sense of urgency. The interview will air on Sunday at 9:30 p.m. eastern and on the KYW-1060 podcast. More updates and quotes to come soon . . .

UPDATE: I just listened to the interview. Some choice Sestak quotes:

“If I thought anything had been done wrong, I would have talked about it in a heartbeat. No one asked for seven or eight months, so I never brought it up. I didn’t think it was right to bring up.”

On Obama: “This president did the same thing I did: He ran against the establishment when he began, he did it for the right principles. I respect that. I learned in the Navy that you have to be accountable for your actions and what you believe in.”

Bill Clinton called “every so often to see how it’s going” as did “Senator Menendez, the DSCC, and others.”
