PA-Sen: Toomey: Links to Trump ‘Outrageous’
A month before she won the Democratic nomination, Katie McGinty began her race against the “Trump-Toomey ticket,” trying to tie the freshman Senator to the likely GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump.
“Yeah, that’s pretty outrageous actually,” Toomey said on the Dom Giordano Program. “But Dom, you know how this presidential race has been unfolding. I supported Marco Rubio. He was my first choice. I still think he’d have been a great president and a great candidate. As of yesterday, we were down to three guys standing, and I voted for Ted Cruz.”
Toomey said it was fine if she continued to try to tie him to Trump, while showing he intends to tie her to likely Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
“She can do whatever she feels she needs to do, but the fact is, she is in lockstep with Hillary Clinton,” he stated. “She actually agrees with Hillary Clinton and the most liberal wing of the Democrats on everything. I don’t know of a single policy area where she would separate herself from Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi and Hillary Clinton.”
Toomey said he would support the eventual GOP nominee because he doesn’t want Clinton to “take this country further to the left, to make the terrible policy of President Obama permanent.”
As Toomey notes in the interview, “there’s going to be lots to talk about in this campaign.”
