Sestak in Somerset, Butler

Published by James O'Toole on .

Amid speculation about his possible ambitions to run for the Democratic nomination for governor next year, former U.S. Rep. Joe Sestak is making the rounds of county Democratic dinners.

The retired admiral, who lost to  Sen. Pat Toomey in 2010, was scheduled to speak at the Somerset County Democratic dinner Thursday night, and planned to stop by a Butler County event Saturday.  A spokesman for Mr. Sestak confirmed his schedule  while noting his cultivation of the party's grass roots is not new.  He pointed out that Mr. Sestak, who has been reticent about his 2014 plans, had appeared at the Somerset dinners in each of the previous two years, and was at the Butler Democratic event in 2011. 

So maybe he's running; or maybe he just likes chicken.
