Democratic Pennsylvania Senate candidate Joe Sestak literally ran into some children during the Marple-Newtown July 4 Parade in Newtown Square, PA last weekend.
The Republican research firm America Rising had a tracker following Sestak at the event and captured footage of him slamming into a pair of toddlers while running along the parade route. America Rising put the footage in a Vine that, as of this writing, has been viewed over 12,000 times. At one point in the clip, bystanders can be heard shouting “Watch it!” and “Jesus Christ!” as Sestak bowls over a small girl.
Sestak is hoping to take on Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pennsylvania) in a race that is crucial to Democrats’ hopes of regaining a Senate majority.
To promote his Senate bid, Sestak went on a 422 mile walk across Pennsylvania. His campaign team did not respond to a request for comment from Business Insider about the accidents along his latest stroll.
