As the nation prepares for a midterm version of Super Tuesday, one race stands out as a symbol for the current state of politics on Capitol Hill — the Democratic Senate primary in Pennsylvania.

What was once a comfortable lead in the polls for incumbent Sen. Arlen Specter over challenger Rep. Joe Sestak has evaporated; according to a new Qunnipiac poll out this week the race is too close to call.

Both campaigns made their final push before the vote Tuesday, with Specter and Sestak hitting the road to rally the base. Both men are hosted events in several cities this weekend. Specter kicked off with a rally in Philadelphia Saturday, while Sestak visited Pittsburgh and Erie.

Both candidates utilized traditional 11th hour strategies this week — unveiling new ads and taking to the airwaves.

In an interview Thursday with ABC News’ Top Line, Sestak said he believes these latest numbers reaffirm voters’ desire for change.

“I think what you’re seeing is just a group of people like me who say, ‘Enough, Washington, you’re broken,'” he said.
