Well, it took em awhile, but the NRSC has finally endorsed Conservative Pat Toomey, who raised just a few hundred thousand less than Incumbent Benedict Arlen Specter.
WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX), Chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), issued the following statement today regarding former U.S. Representative Pat Toomey’s (R-PA) candidacy for the U.S. Senate in 2010:
“Congressman Pat Toomey’s life experience and public service make him uniquely qualified to serve Pennsylvanians in the U.S. Senate. Through hard work and self-reliance, Pat Toomey has successfully represented a Democrat-leaning district and accomplished much in his private sector endeavors. Congressman Toomey is a vigorous and determined advocate for the people of Pennsylvania, and he is clearly guided by principles instead of political opportunism.
“As the Keystone State struggles in our nation’s current economic crisis, I know that Pat Toomey will ably fight for less government and lower taxes on behalf of families and small businesses. Congressman Toomey will help restore the checks and balances in Washington that Pennsylvanians deserve, and the National Republican Senatorial Committee will fully support his bid to become the next U.S. Senator from Pennsylvania.”
