  1. Toomey hasn’t energised his base. Trump going to roll in traditional D parts of state because of immigration. Doesnt look like Toomey wants to go along for the ride. No matter what he says, he will lose philly and SE counties so where is he going?

  2. Tim-

    “Santorum tried to hide his right wing crazy during elections” ??? WTF??

    He NEVER tried to hide his crazy.

  3. This is not a time to send an ideological rookie to represent Pennsylvania in the U.S. Senate. Toomey is the best choice for us.


  4. Santorum tried to hide his right wing crazy during elections. We all know how that worked out. When I see Toomey running adds that McGinty is a millionaire is complete crazy. Toomey did own a bank. How many of you out there can set up your own bank. Toomey is a liar he will say and do anything to be REELECTED. KOCH BROTHERS pouring money to Toomey to spread these lies. Do you think the Kocks like Toomey’s looks or do you believe they are buying Toomey ‘S support in the Senate.

  5. Hard to fathom why the McGinty campaign has not directly called out Toomey for his weaselly “Oh, I’m really a middle of the road moderate” campaign ads. He has a documented record as a far-right radical and he is actively hiding it. Unless voters hear about that in the next week, Katie could very easily lose this very winnable election.

    It’s a crime to let Toomey get away with this charade.
