Here's the transcript of the latter:
Pat: I’m Pat Toomey and I approve this message. I worked on Wall Street just out of college and left twenty years ago. That was before my brothers and I started a small business in Allentown. Way back then, I learned that Wall Street’s the last place that should ever get a taxpayer bailout.
Voiceover: Congressman Joe Sestak voted for the Wall Street bailout. Then, Sestak took thousands of dollars from the same Wall Street banks he bailed out. Joe Sestak – too liberal with our money.

Transcript – “Focus:”
Pat: Just a few months ago, Kris and I had our third child. There’s really nothing like the wonder of a new baby to focus your attention on the future. I’ll always be optimistic about America, but I worry about the direction we’re heading– too much debt, not enough jobs, and the Washington politicians are making it worse. I’m Pat Toomey. I approve this message because I know we can do better, and I have a pretty good reason for wanting to.
