The Sestak v. Specter air war begins

From NBC's Mark Murray and Sarah Blackwill
As we mentioned in First Thoughts this morning, Joe Sestak has launched his first TV ad in his Democratic Senate primary against Arlen Specter. Sestak's 60-second ad is mostly a bio spot, but it does take this shot at Specter: "If we want real change in Washington, we can't keep sending the same career politicians to represent us."

Meanwhile, Specter has a new TV ad hitting Sestak, calling him "No Show Joe" for his poor attendance record in the House (Hat tip: Politico).
