Last night, election results around the country and in Pennsylvania demonstrate that the tide is turning against big-government, big-spending policies. In Pennsylvania, six out of seven Republican judicial candidates were victorious in their state-wide bids.
“Congratulations to all of our great Republican candidates who won yesterday in Pennsylvania,” U.S. Senate candidate Pat Toomey said. “That tells us there is real energy in our state party, which will only continue to grow into next year.”
Toomey also applauded the results from the neighboring state of New Jersey. In that state, as well as in Virginia, President Obama won by wide margins in 2009; yet yesterday, Republicans were victorious by impressive margins. “For nearly a year, the one-party monopoly in Washington has been pushing extreme policies on the American people, including government-run health care, unprecedented spending increases, and record deficit and debt levels. Yesterday, voters made their voices heard. It’s time we stopped the parade of bailouts, government takeovers, and record-breaking spending, and replaced it with commonsense reforms that do not bankrupt our country.”
