Former PA Rep. Joe Sestak Enters Crowded Democratic 2020 Race

HeadlineJun 25, 2019

Former Pennsylvania Congressmember Joe Sestak entered the crowded race to become the 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Sunday. Sestak is a former Navy admiral and highlighted his military career in his announcement. His campaign video states his priorities as tackling climate change and restoring the U.S.'s global leadership. He said he wants to “put an end to an illiberal world order's injustices, from China’s control of the 5G network to Russian interference in democratic elections.” Sestak entered the race too late to qualify for the first Democratic debates, taking place later this week in Florida.
