Toomey gets backing of local firefighters

Republican U.S. Senate candidate Pat Toomey received the backing of the Philadelphia Fire Fighters' Union Local No. 22 (IAFF/AFL-CIO) Friday, according to the Toomey campaign.
“We here at Local 22 have followed your career and as citizens of the great City of Brotherly Love and uniformed servants to the people of Philadelphia, we feel that you will understand our plight and help make the working conditions for our firefighters and paramedics safe and secure,” said union President Bill Gault in a letter to Toomey. “On behalf of the men and women of this labor union, we wish you the very best on November 2nd and we look forward to a victorious win."
“Our first responders 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 a release. “I look forward to working with them in the U.S. Senate.”
