Santorum: “Pat Toomey is exactly the right candidate for what this country is looking for, what the people of Pennsylvania are looking for.”

Santorum: “Pat Toomey is exactly the right candidate for what this country is looking for, what the people of Pennsylvania are looking for.”

When Will Rick Santorum Officially Endorse Pat Toomey?

Harrisburg, PA – Pat Toomey has said his record is “pretty hard to distinguish from Rick Santorum’s” and yesterday Rick Santorum praised Toomey, but stopped short of an endorsement, which leaves the question: When will Rick Santorum endorse fellow right wing extremist Pat Toomey?

Santorum used to say that Pat Toomey was too extreme for Pennsylvania, but now that Santorum is running for President and playing to the extremist wing of the Tea Party, he is praising Toomey’s extreme record.

An ad released earlier this month using Toomey’s own words to compare himself to Santorum has been credited with Joe Sestak overtaking Toomey in several recent polls.

“When will Rick Santorum officially endorse Pat Toomey? Pat Toomey and Rick Santorum are one in the same, and Pat Toomey even admits it,” said Mark Nicastre a spokesman with the Pennsylvania Democratic Party. “Four years ago Pennsylvanians rejected Rick Santorum and now they’re rejecting Pat Toomey who admits his record is ‘pretty hard to distinguish from Rick Santorum’s.’ Sarah Palin’s endorsement of Toomey yesterday didn’t help Toomey’s poll numbers, maybe an endorsement by Rick Santorum will give a boost to Toomey’s failing campaign.” 

From the Patriot News by Ivey DeJesus:

Santorum has abstained from weighing in on the competitive race for the seat he once held, now being contested by Republican Pat Toomey and Democrat Joe Sestak.

The Sestak camp has quoted Santorum as having said he thought Toomey was too far out of the mainstream for Pennsylvania.

He quipped about the veracity of that claim: “I say a lot of things. I don’t know whether I said that or not.”

He said Toomey was the ideal fiscal conservative and small-government advocate.

“Pat Toomey is exactly the right candidate for what this country is looking for, what the people of Pennsylvania are looking for.”
