PA-Sen: Toomey Strikes Out at Sestak, McGinty
With the race for PA’s junior Senate seat truly underway, incumbent Pat Toomey has created a new website, WhoIsWorse.com, attacking the records of two of his Democratic challengers.
Toomey’s site slams “Corporate Katie McGinty” for taking advantage of the system by making millions of dollars working in the private energy sector and working for a “notorious” D.C. law firm, labeling her a “public self servant.”
“Few have navigated the money-making ‘revolving door’ between government and government-dependent companies like Katie McGinty,” the site reads. “Katie McGinty has a shocking record of cashing in on her government work while ignoring taxpayers’ interests.”
McGinty’s positions “have been rejected by most Pennsylvanians,” the site says, including increasing taxes and government spending, supporting the Iran nuclear deal and “subverting state law on capital punishment.”
McGinty was Gov. Tom Wolf’s Chief of Staff in February when he instituted a moratorium on the death penalty.
The site calls Sestak an “extreme liberal Democrat” – a cheerleader for for the $787 billion bailout and one of Nancy’s Pelosi’s “most trusted partners” in the U.S. House.
“As a congressman, Sestak sought more government healthcare than Obamacare, wanted the failed stimulus to be even bigger and complained that the cap and trade energy tax didn’t go far enough – even though he voted for all of them,” the site reads.
John Fetterman, the third Democrat running for Toomey’s seat, took his omission from Toomey’s site in stride.
“I’d just like to thank Pat Toomey for his endorsement,” Fetterman’s campaign told Jonathan Tamari.
