Pa-7: A Sestak Challenger
Rep. Joe Sestak, who defeated long-time PA Republican Curt Weldon in a high-profile 2006 mid-term race, has a challenger in 2008. W. Craig Williams, a veteran of the first Gulf War and a former ADA in Philadelphia, has thrown his hat into the ring.

He is a proponant of the war and has the added advantage of having a reputation as a “tough on crime” DA in a city where the opposite is far too often the case and has taken a strong stance on illegal immigration. Read more about him here. With continued progress in Iraq and a disillusioned base, it seems a plain old “patriot” might have a shot at reclaiming Rep. Weldon’s seat.
