Reader Poll: Do You Approve of Senator Pat Toomey’s Job Performance?
A few weeks back, we asked our readers to judge how the Attorney General was doing, so we thought this week we’d shift to the job performance of the state’s junior Senator.
Senator Toomey was first elected in 2010 and is just starting to prepare for his re-election effort in 2016. His previous opponent, former Congressman Joe Sestak, has already jumped into the race.
A Club for Growth Republican, it was thought by some that Toomey would be a conservative leader once he entered the Senate. While he has been a reliable Republican vote, the issue he stood out most prominently on was gun control, where he took a stance counter to his base.
Recently, Sen. Toomey was quoted as saying that the new Congress will be able to break the gridlock in the nation’s capital. We’ll have to see, but he might be a bit too optimistic there.
So, dear readers, what do you think of Senator Toomey’s performance so far?
