Sestak: Only an ‘act of God’ will keep him out of Senate race

PITTSBURGH—Short of divine intervention, Congressman Joe Sestak (D-7) is running for Senate.

“It would take an act of God for me to not get in now,” Sestak told a Democratic State Committeeman Saturday morning within earshot of reporters.

Hearing his quote read back to him, Sestak cringed.

“That sounds blasphemous,” he said, not denying that he said it—and has said it before.

But he reiterated to that the final decision rests with his family—not the Lord Almighty.

“I want us to be in this together,” he said.
