PA-Sen: McGinty Plays Basketball in New Ad (VIDEO)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uD4UCjWS4Kk

Katie McGinty went to the basketball courts for her latest ad.

The thirty-second spot, titled “Basketball”, includes some biographical details on the Democrat as well as attacks against Sen. Toomey.

“I played high school ball,” she begins. “The game taught me a lot about life: you work hard, you do better. I teach my kids the same thing.”

The challenger then turns to attacking the Republican incumbent.

“I don’t understand why Pat Toomey wants to rig the game in favor of banks, big oil, Wall Street insiders,” she states. “Voting against equal pay and to make student loans more expensive? The way I see it, if we support middle class families, well, we’re all winners.”

“I’m Katie McGinty and I approve this message–and that shot,” McGinty concludes as a girl hits a basket in the background.

  1. Does anyone know if Katie was one of those psychotic kids who walked around town dressed like a nun?

  2. Even Lodge 5 of the FOP in Philly endorsed Toomey! They always endorse the democrat, but they saw that Toomey has actually done something for crime victims.

    Inquirer Editorial: Katie McGinty for the U.S. Senate

    If corporations were people, Pennsylvania’s Republican freshman Sen. Pat Toomey would be the right senator for them. His approach to governance is to slash regulations and taxes to help companies, which he believes would provide good paying jobs. But that hasn’t worked for average people struggling with flat wages, job insecurity and wondering why so little of the good economic news isn’t about them.
    Toomey, 54, would eliminate Obamacare and let the marketplace decide to provide benefits like covering children up to age 26. He’d kill an agency that keeps lenders from preying on consumers and return to the days of low-regulation and low-oversight of Wall Street, which led to the financial meltdown.
    He opposes forcing companies to clean up greenhouse gases which contribute to global warming, a factor in the spate of floods and wildfires ravaging the country. And, he favors Supreme Court decisions that allow unlimited corporate funds to persuade voters in elections.
    A product of the radical right, Toomey voted to shut down the government over raising the debt ceiling rather than find a civil solution. But, in a stellar moment, he crossed the aisle to seek background checks for those who wish to purchase guns. He failed, but says he’d try again if re-elected. Let’s hope it’s with more conviction than his politically expedient equivocation over whether to support his party’s presidential nominee, Donald Trump, an admitted serial molester.
    In contrast, there is no doubt that Toomey’s challenger, Democrat Katie McGinty, has the interests of Pennsylvania’s people at heart. She speaks as a woman who grew up working class in Philadelphia and struck out on a career in public service, advising President Bill Clinton on the environment, leading Pennsylvania’s Department of Environmental Protection and serving, albeit briefly, as Gov. Wolf’s chief of staff.
    McGinty, 53, wants to raise the minimum wage, expand child care credits and fight for equal pay for women. She would invest in research, skilled manufacturing and renewable energy. McGinty wants to expand pre-kindergarten, improve public schools, make college affordable and training available to adults. She would lower health care costs by decreasing co-payments and high deductibles and cut abusive drug pricing.
    These candidates’ sharp disagreements on issues should be enough to distinguish them in a tight race, but they and their supporters are exaggerating each other’s ethical lapses. For example, after leaving the Clinton administration, McGinty worked with a law firm that erroneously listed her as a lobbyist for a few days on a disclosure form. The attack is a distortion. But when McGinty worked as the state’s environmental secretary, she oversaw contracts awarded to an advocacy group which hired her husband as a $3,700 consultant.
    The Ethics Commission rightly chided her. This isn’t good but not as egregious as Toomey’s forces claim. She attacks Toomey for sitting on the Senate Banking Committee while holding bank stock. That doesn’t violate ethics rules.
    Because she has a genuine grasp on the human consequences of government policies and seeks to improve the quality of life for all, The Inquirer endorses KATIE MCGINTY for U.S. Senate.
