Well, the rumors can now come to an end. They started out with the rumblings that Pat Toomey, former Club For Growth CEO, would make a run for PA governor in 2010. Then when Arlen Spector delivered that kick in the face to conservatives everywhere by voting yes to the stimulus, rumors started flying that Toomey would challenge him for his Senate seat.
Today Pat Toomey officially announced his bid for Senator. He has launched an official campaign website toomeyforsenate.com and is taking donations and volunteer information to start his fight against the closet liberal Arlen Spector.
In a video on his site he explains exactly why we need him as a Senator. ""We can stop the bailouts and the spending stampede; we can reduce the burdens on taxpayers; and we can unlock the ingenuity and job creation potential of our great nation once again," Toomey said in his remarks. "I am running for the U.S. Senate because I believe the economic stakes for our country have never been higher. The people of Pennsylvania deserve the very best from their leaders in Washington – but that's not what they are receiving."
I agree Pat. We need you.
