Sestak picks up another endorsement
Sestak, a Democrat and Delco native, is currently exploring a run for U.S. Senate in 2016. Sestak is eyeing a rematch with U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pa.
The Council for a Livable World, a nonpartisan advocacy organization, announced its support of Sestak, a former three-star U.S. Navy admiral, Wednesday morning.
"Adm. Sestak is following a brilliant strategy of organizing and fundraising for the 2016 campaign remarkably early in what is sure to be a challenging contest," said John Isaacs, executive director for The Council for a Livable World, in a prepared statement.
Jules Zacher, a member of The Council for a Livable World's Board of Directors, said said Sestak was "a champion for a pragmatic foreign and national security policy that addresses America's 21st century security threats" during his military career and tenure in the U.S. House.
Sestak was endorsed by the organization in his 2006 and 2008 races for U.S. House and in his 2010 run for the U.S. Senate.
"I'm honored to again have the support of those who advocate a practical approach to U.S. global security interests at the Council for a Livable World," Sestak said in the statement.
Sestak picked up another early endorsement in September.
