After throwing its weight behind a few moderates — and, in recent election cycles, fighting his Club for Growth — the National Republican Senatorial Committee has endorsed Pat Toomey for Senate in Pennsylvania.
“I am honored to have the National Republican Senatorial Committee’s endorsement along with the wave of support I have received from people all across Pennsylvania,” Toomey said. “Pennsylvanians are looking for thoughtful policies instead of the extremism they are witnessing in Washington today. Over the next sixteen months, I will continue to bring my message of fiscal responsibility, political balance, and economic growth to voters across the Commonwealth.”
The NRSC originally supported Arlen Specter for this Senate seat, until Specter became a Democrat earlier this year.
