Well, that didn't take long. On the first official day of Joe Sestak's campaign, many things went wrong for the Democrat.
The Hill reports that Sestak's announcement drew a small crowd and suffered serious technical problems:
His speech was only taken in by a few dozen backers, many of them service men, rather than a large crowd. His campaign website was down for most of the morning as he made his announcement, and the live stream his staff planned for reporters didn’t work.
In addition to a paltry crowd and website problems, Sestak botched a quotation from "To Kill A Mockingbird."
Democrats around the country have been saying for some time that Sestak will lose to incumbent Pat Toomey.
There's so much distance between national Democrats and Sestak that he didn't even tell the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee about his announcement, according to National Journal
Joe Sestak is an unconventional Senate candidate, and his campaign is off to an unconventional start.
The former congressman and decorated former Navy admiral kicked off his Senate campaign in Philadelphia on Wednesday, but he didn't tell anyone at the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee about his plans.
Sestak's campaign is off to a bumpy start, while Pat Toomey is on the path to re-election.
