10 Biggest Election Wins

10. Pat Toomey (R-PA) Beats Joe Sestak (D)

Another primary challenger who defied party pressure to stay out of the race, Joe Sestak found himself moving from one underdog fight to another. First he bettered Arlen Specter, the 30-year Senate veteran, who abandoned the Republican Party in order to avoid a primary challenge from conservative Pat Toomey. Then Sestak ran smack into Toomey. Sestak worked to make Toomey, the former Club for Growth chief, looked like a Wall Street apologist. Toomey stretched to make Sestak a patsy for Nancy Pelosi. Toomey was Tea Party before Tea Party was cool, chasing Specter out of the party. His win might have been the perfect match of man and moment. (AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster)
