Joe Sestak (D) and Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski (D), as well as a series of hypothetical Democratic recruits: State Sen. Vincent Hughes (D), former Gov. Ed Rendell (D), former Rep. Chris Carney (D) and Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams (D). Sestak, who was unknown by more than half of respondents, came closest to Toomey. (release)
