Senate candidates pick up more endorsments

Former U.S. Rep. Pat Toomey, of Zionsville, received the endorsement of the Pennsylvania State Troopers Association this week in his bid for the U.S. Senate.
“Pat has the kind of qualities you want in a senator – attentive, principled, and balanced. His commonsense approach to being tough on criminals, standing up to law enforcement, and protecting our national security is the reason we are proud to endorse him,” said association President Bruce Edwards in a release.
“The State Troopers represent Pennsylvania’s hard working men and women who put their lives on the line every day to protect our communities and our families. ,” said Toomey in the release. “I am honored by their endorsement today, and I look forward to working with them in the U.S. Senate.”
Democratic U.S. Senate candidate U.S. Rep. Joseph Sestak, D-7, of Edgmont, also received the backing of the Alliance for Retired Americans Tuesday.
ARA Pennsylvania chapter vice president Jerry Pollack said Sestak “has fought his entire time in Congress to protect and expand the trust fund,” and told seniors: “You will have a clear choice this fall, between Joe Sestak, who will defend Social Security, or Pat Toomey, who will gamble it away on Wall Street.”
