Rep. Joe Sestak (D-Pa.) is pounding the pavement all day today, traveling around the greater Philadelphia area in an attempt to raise turnout in the area where he’ll need it the most, and he’s bringing out his secret weapon: Former President Bill Clinton.

Clinton, who employed Sestak on his counterintelligence team at the White House, will join him for Get Out the Vote rallies at Bryn Mawr College, Cheyney University and Temple University today. He has also cut a radio ad for Sestak, which makes the case for why Sestak is the best man to represent Pennsylvanians in the Senate:

I’d like to tell you about the Joe Sestak I’ve known for 15 years. He’s a true patriot. Thirty-one years in the Navy. A Three-star admiral. His dad was a Navy man who taught Joe that it’s his duty to serve, to look out for the little guy, to stand up to the special interests. That’s why the Washington crowd is spending so much to elect his opponent. Because Joe is tough enough to really make a difference in the senate.  He’s a very good man.

Having Clinton at your side these days is a better bet than having just about anyone, including the sitting president and his predecessor. He’s still quite beloved in Pennsylvania, and a new Bloomberg poll shows he might just be the best person to have alongside you on the campaign trail, period:

President Barack Obama’s campaigning isn’t helping Democrats, the poll shows, with a majority saying it makes no difference and almost one-fourth saying his efforts on behalf of his party actually make them more likely to vote Republican. Another Democrat, former President Bill Clinton, may be helping, as he outscores other politicians tested on popularity by a wide margin.
