Toomey gets Reed's backing.

Former U.S. Rep. and current U.S. Senate candidate Pat Toomey received the backing of former Democratic Harrisburg Mayor Stephen Reed Monday.
Reed, mayor of Harrisburg from 1981 through 2005, said in a release that Toomey is "exactly the kind of candidate that Democrats, Republicans, and Independents can rally around."
"His background as a small business owner and his focus on job creation is sorely needed in today’s economy. I believe Pat’s emphasis on policies that will cut taxes, ease the regulatory burden on Pennsylvania businesses and workers, and encourage entrepreneurship will help our state and country achieve the economic recovery our citizens deserve.”

“I am honored by Mayor Reed’s endorsement of my candidacy today,”  said Toomey. “Mayor Reed has demonstrated a commitment to job creation and economic growth during his time as Harrisburg’s longest serving mayor. There are many Democrats, Independents, and Republicans across Pennsylvania who share Mayor Reed’s commitment to get our economy moving again, and I hope to work with all of these folks, regardless of political party.”
