Sen. Toomey To Stay Neutral in GOP U.S. Senate Primary

By: Geoffrey Middleberg, Assistant Editor

Sen. Pat Toomey’s political director sent a letter in advance of this weekend’s GOP Winter Meeting to the Senate campaigns informing them that he will not be endorsing in the race at this point.

He pledged to support whatever candidate became the nominee. He thanked all of the senate campaigns for their past support of the Senator.

Sen. Toomey’s decision stands in contrast to Gov. Corbett who has endorsed Steve Welch previously and is trying to pull the party levers to ensure that Welch is endorsed by the state committee.

Sam Rohrer has been very public about his desire for the state committee not to endorse at the meeting.

  1. A wise move by Senator Toomey. It would have been very surprising to see him endorse in light of 2004 when President Bush and Rick Santorum came through with an 11th hour endorsement for his opponent when he was leading in the primary to that point.
