Fresh off some heartening poll numbers for Rep. Joe Sestak (D-Pa.) in his Senate race, the Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) had announced that it will launch a major ad campaign tomorrow in the Philadelphia area, spending over $1 million attacking the congressman over his record on Israel.

The RJC has taken a strong interest in the Pennsylvania race. It attacked Sestak earlier in the campaign following an endorsement he received from former Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-Neb.), another figure the group considers to be dangerously anti-Israel. Its new ad points out that Sestak said he would support the trial of Khalid Sheikh Mohammad in a Pennsylvania civilian court and paints the idea as irresponsible.

Going after Sestak on national security issues seems unlikely to make a big dent in his support. The man is a retired three-star admiral who worked in counterintelligence for years. Yet the added million dollars’ worth of negative air time in an area he needs to win by a wide margin is a sizable sum that will counterbalance the cash-on-hand advantage that Sestak improbably enjoys over former Rep. Pat Toomey.

Another interesting storyline to monitor will be to see what additional moves, if any, Toomey’s old friends at the Club for Growth will make on his behalf in the final weeks of the campaign.
