In the RealClearPolitics average of polls, Toomey leads Sestak by 2.5%.
In Colorado, SurveyUSA shows Republican Ken Buck and Democratic senator Michael Bennet dead even at 47%--and Public Policy Polling finds the exact same results. Buck leads Bennet by 1 point in the RCP average.

The Stamford Advocate digs up this November 9, 2008 quote from Dick Blumenthal speaking at a Veterans Day parade:
"I wore the uniform in Vietnam and many came back & to all kinds of disrespect. Whatever we think of war, we owe the men and women of the armed forces our unconditional support."
For a former editor of the Harvard Crimson and Yale Law Journal, Blumenthal sure does mix up the words "in" and "during" a lot. The Advocate reports that Blumenthal's misstatements about serving in Vietnam are now up to five ... and counting.
