(CNN) – Rep. Joe Sestak hailed his victory over Sen. Arlen Specter in Pennsylvania's Democratic Senate primary as "a win for the people."
"This is what Democracy looks like," Sestak told his supporters Tuesday night. "A win for the people - over the establishment, over the status quo, even over Washington, D.C."

Go home Specter that's what yopu get for becoming a trader to your voters and party.
Definitely a win for the people.
Specter in his flip flopping parties and supporting the healthcare bill his people did not want, was against the people, and the people (even the democrats, since he became unelectable by the people in general elections) booted him out!
A classical case of punishment for one's sins!
Go with momentarily popular administration/ agenda as did Specter and you lose too– this is the lesson: Americans are patriots, Americans love their country as it is, and Americans will fight for it (starting in the ballot booth, and then on and on)!!!!!
A great win for democrats and Democrats with Joe Sestak and Mark Critz. Pennsylvania has started the journey to November.
I just want capable politicians from now on-I am scared and I really hope people think before they vote. I think this guy, and I have heard him on news shows, is a better choice. I am not a Democrat but I think he is about as good as a candidate can get-I just don't think any candidate today is a JFK or a Reagan.
Specter, another career, corrupt politician has been given his pink slip.
More of this to come in November.
Good progress so far on the task of removing ALL incumbents
Congratulations sir!!! It seems people are waking up!. NO MORE NO more! No more..........
That's great. Is anyone really surprised by the loss of Specter, the two timing, self serving, gutless, principle less pathetic excuse for a peoples Representative? Come on now, he was all about self preservation, he didn't stand for anything, he had no convictions, no ideology besides self love and no principles. People saw through that as soon as he changed the party. Goes to prove - you can fool some people some time but not all the people all the time. He is finished, washed up and I say good riddance.Pennsylvania is better off without him, Go democracy!
It shouldn't be that hard to beat out an 80 year old for a job.
