Pennsylvania Senate Candidates Sestak and Toomey Pull Out All the Stops

Associated Press + More

The Toomey campaign is knocking on about 20,000 or more doors per week and calling roughly 36,000 households per day, campaign manager Mark Harris said.

Sestak said that since July he's had 25 campaign offices open and workers averaging 27,000 phone calls to voters each night. Sestak said he's focusing on moderate voters of all stripes and following up the phone calls with door-to-door volunteer visits and brochures. Organized labor is flexing its muscle in the state with a big push for Sestak and other Democrats.

Democrats are seen as having a superior get-out-the-vote organization in Pennsylvania, but the party's operation was not strong enough to carry Specter to victory in the party primary this year.
