PA-Sen: IUPA Endorses Toomey

Pat-ToomeySenator Pat Toomey has won the endorsement of the AFL-CIO’s police union.

The International Union of Police Associations (I.U.P.A.) announced that they’re backing the Senator.

“You [Senator Toomey] have always been a strong advocate for our nation’s first responders,” IUPA President Sam Cabaral stated. “While many elected officials drape themselves in the mantle of ‘law and order,’ you have stood out as a steadfast supporter of the men and women who provide for public safety. It is not a campaign slogan for you, but a promise — a promise you have always kept.”

“I am honored to receive the support of the I.U.P.A. and I will continue to work tirelessly to support our men and women in uniform,” said Senator Toomey. “Every day, law enforcement officers and first responders selflessly put their lives on the line to make communities in Pennsylvania and across the country safer for our families. They embody public service and I am proud to be their voice in Washington.”

Sen. Toomey is running for his second term this year.

  1. What is going on with Toomey and all the police / fire-fighter endorsements? And those seem to be just about the only ones he’s received or at least talks about.

    Also, wouldn’t they normally favor a guy who spent his own career protecting the nation, rather than an anti-union Wall Street alum and small government radical? How do they think their members will be paid and equipped if we keep cutting taxes? What’s the point of their efforts if we don’t support the courts?

  2. Toomey a “strong supporter” of first responders??? How did he vote on the 9/11 benefits?

  3. He’s going to need all the help he can get. He may breathe a tad easier now that Katie has been endorsed, but the Supreme Court issue is a darned if you do/don’t in the general.

    He is going to need every R vote he can get, and I’m not sure the 100%’ers will vote for him this time out.
