Pat Toomey just can’t escape Donald Trump.
In his latest ad, Sen. Toomey tries to assert his independence from the man atop his party’s ticket. The thirty-second spot, which is actually titled “Independence”, features the GOP nominee talking straight to camera.
“I have a lot of disagreements with Donald Trump. I’ve been very clear about that,” Toomey begins. “But what’s important for Pennsylvanians is having a senator who will stand up to any president’s bad ideas.”
“Katie McGinty was hand-picked by Washington political bosses,” a narrator adds. “She won’t name a single thing she disagrees with them on.”
“In Washington, if you don’t have some independence, some backbone, you might as well not even be there,” Toomey concludes.
Despite the Senator’s call for “some backbone”, his lack of decisiveness about Trump has reached the level of a national joke.
Last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the show created a mock commercial making fun of Toomey.
