PA-Sen: PA State Troopers Back Toomey

Pat-ToomeySo far Democratic candidate Katie McGinty has racked up most of the union endorsements.

Today, however, incumbent GOP Senator Pat Toomey pulled in his own labor supporters, the Pennsylvania State Troopers Association.

“On behalf of over 9,000 active and retired State Troopers, the Pennsylvania State Troopers Association would like to thank Senator Toomey for his efforts in support of law enforcement in Pennsylvania and all across the country,” said Joseph R. Kovel, President of the PSTA. “In an age when some make it a point to denigrate law enforcement, Senator Toomey has been a strong voice that stresses that police are here to protect us and keep us safe. Senator Toomey has been the leading voice in support of law enforcement in Washington.”

“It is an honor to receive the support of the Pennsylvania State Troopers Association,” Senator Toomey responded. “The men and women who serve in the Pennsylvania State Police and in police departments across the state risk their lives every day to make our communities safer. They deserve our respect and admiration now more than ever, as extreme, anti-law enforcement rhetoric has led to violence against police officers. The Pennsylvania State Police have our backs, and I am proud to have theirs in Washington.”

Toomey is running unopposed in the GOP primary. McGinty, Joe Sestak and John Fetterman are seeking the Democratic nomination.

  1. Senator Toomey, thank you for supporting PA State Troopers ! We already knew that you were very supportive of our Troopers, one of which is our son, a Trooper stationed at Troop M, Trevose ! Please consider, if Rubio is not able to run, putting your support behind Ted Cruz. We know you endorsed Rubio. We are not in support of Trump at all . We do support you and will continue to do so !! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts ! Larry & Linda Bair 1729 Andrews Place Ext, Williamsport,PA 17701

  2. “An unarmed policeman was sucker-punched and stomped by Shady McCoy and his crew.”

    That is 100% accurate. And Seth Williams continues to give the celebrity athlete a FREE PASS.

    Just like the FREE PASS Seth Williams gave to the celebrity union leader John Dougherty.

    See a theme here??!!??

  3. I hope he doesn’t help to steal your pensions, like the rest of the PA too, Troopers. Nice way to (figuratively) shoot yourself in the feet. Backing a guy who agrees with his party that state and Federal employees are overpaid loads.

  4. H3 – The alternate version of that incident says the off-duty cops (one of who brandished his weapon) were drunk, disorderly, and instigators. And there is no clear video evidence that McCoy did any stomping.

  5. There was a time when the PSP was the best police force that the coal and steel companies could buy.

  6. An unarmed policeman was sucker-punched and stomped by Shady McCoy and his crew. Maybe that’s what One-Term-Toomey is talking about??

  7. Geez, I think I missed the press reports about the unarmed policemen being shot or stangled to death.

  8. What a fucking DB:

    “extreme, anti-law enforcement rhetoric”

    What about extreme, anti-human behavior by Police?
