Incumbent Specter started out with huge lead but Sestak has been rapidly rising in the polls. Party-switcher Specter had the backing of President Obama and the Party bosses and now some are freaking out.

But that, of course, only raises the real problem he faces this year: Republicans like Monica Douglas know how dangerous Sestak can be. Democrats, though, don't watch FOX.
