  1. Howard – you don’t seem to get it. Toomey accomplished NOTHING in 6 years. He does not deserve another 6.

    Plus – he gets an A+ from NRA and has not denounced Trump.

  2. Toomey lost when he refused to denounce Trump like Ayotte, Portman, and other Republicans up for re-election this year. They had courage. He does not.

  3. Trump/Toomey 2016. Vote for the man who assaults women and the Senator who refuses to denounce him.

  4. A vote for Toomey is NOT a vote for Trump. It is a vote for Toomey and a chance to have balance in the government.

  5. This is not the time to send a rookie to the Senate. Pat Toomey has earned another term


  6. Toomey condemned what Trump said on the tape, but he still won’t speak against Trump himself. That should tell voters everything they need to know about this weasel.

    A vote for Toomey is a vote for Trump.

  7. Not a big Katie fan, but she will be a lot better than Toomey. I will vote for her, because what did Toomey do for us other than help his Wall Street buddies and the rich.
