Former Pennsylvania Congressman and retired three-star admiral Joe Sestak is joining the crowded Democratic race for president.

Sestak is now the 25th candidate to seek the Democratic nomination.

He is a Vietnam War veteran and also served in Iraq and Afghanistan.

He made his announcement with a video posted to his campaign website.

While kicking off his presidential campaign, Sestak focused on creating a government that is more accountable.

He says he joined the race later than most because his daughter was battling brain cancer.
