Toomey Receives Endorsement from Fmr. Navy Sec. John Lehman

Allentown, PA – Today in Harrisburg, U.S. Senate candidate and former small business owner, Pat Toomey, received the endorsement of former Secretary of the United States Navy, John Lehman.
 
Secretary Lehman was appointed Secretary of the Navy by President Reagan at the young age of 38. Lehman was unique in serving as a Commander in the Naval Reserve while also occupying the seat of Navy Secretary. 
 
“Pat is a man of principle and integrity,” said Secretary Lehman at today’s endorsement event at the Hilton in Harrisburg. “His commitment to the principles of limited government, individual freedom, and personal liberty are unwavering. Pat has tremendous respect for our armed services and a great love for this country.  I know he will always put the security of our country first. I look forward to helping him win his race in November.”

“I am honored by Secretary Lehman’s visit to our State Capitol this morning and I’m grateful to have his endorsement,” said Toomey. “Secretary Lehman and I share the belief that a strong military requires a strong economy. Congressman Sestak has taken positions on key national security and economic policies that are well outside the mainstream – even among most Democrats – and have hurt Pennsylvania. It’s time we get our economy back on track and Pennsylvania taxpayers back to work.”
