KYW 1060 reports that Rep. Joe Sestak, challenging Sen. Arlen Specter in the Democratic primary, revealed the White House offered him a job to drop the race. Larry Kane writes: "In a taping for my Sunday Comcast show, I asked questioned him on the topic: Kane: "Were you ever offered a federal job to get out of this race?" Sestak: "Yes." Kane: "Was it Navy secretary?" Sestak: "No comment." Kane: "Was it high ranking?" Sestak: "Let me just say that both here in Pennsylvania, and down there (Washington), I was called quite a few time. And all I said is, 'look, I felt when a deal is made that it was hurting the Democratic process.'" The White House on Friday morning strongly denied the claim that a job was offered."
