Rep. Joe Sestak (D-Pa.), who is challenging Sen. Arlen Specter (D-Pa.) in next year's Senate primary, is taking strongly to Twitter to promote the endorsement of Ned Lamont.
Campaigns usually tweet once about endorsements, but Lamont's backing may hold a special significance for Sestak. The congressman on Monday tweeted four times about Lamont; a tweet-up usually reserved for a special occasion, such as a presidential visit on the trail.
Sestak is attempting a Lamont-like strategy against Specter, who left the Republican Party in April to become a Democrat.
Just finished the Stephanie Miller Show, now on the way to Independence Hall with Ned Lamont! #sestak
Sestak's campaign frequently uses the hashtag "#p2," which stands for "progressives 2.0" and is the primary topic indicator for liberal Twitter users.
