Pat Toomey is shifting his strategy.
At least a little bit.
While his campaign’s TV ad, titled “Choice”, still accuses McGinty of lying to Pennsylvanians, it also makes the case that he is independent in a way he is not. This line is likely the result of recent trends in the presidential contest.
“Katie McGinty started her campaign with a lie about being the first in her family to go to college. And it’s been one lie after another about Pat Toomey,” a narrator begins.
Sen. Toomey then appears and delivers the second half of the thirty-second spot.
“Clear away the mud and people have a choice in this election,” he states. If you want a partisan rubber stamp, then Katie McGinty is for you. But if you’re looking for someone who stands up for taxpayers and public safety, then join our campaign.”
