Following a string of impressive bipartisan and nonpartisan endorsements and announcements of support, including from former Democratic Harrisburg Mayor Stephen Reed, the Fraternal Order of Police, the Philadelphia Fraternal Order of Police, the Pennsylvania State Troopers Association, the National Federation of Independent Business, and the Pennsylvania Medical Society PAC, Pennsylvania U.S. Senate candidate and former small business owner Pat Toomey was endorsed yesterday by local community business leaders in Congressman Joe Sestak’s own congressional district.
SEPAC, which combines the Delaware County, Chester County, and Main Line Chambers of Commerce, endorsed Pat Toomey, making it clear that the small business community in Joe Sestak’s congressional district is supporting Pat Toomey over their own congressman.
The business leaders who know Joe Sestak best support Pat Toomey for Senate because they know that Pat will fight for job creation in Pennsylvania and oppose the job-killing taxes and government mandates that are preventing an economic recovery.
This latest endorsement comes on the heels of the Toomey endorsement last week by New York City Mayor Giuliani, who said, “I know Pat will be victorious on November 2nd, because his vision of fiscal responsibility, cutting taxes, and creating jobs is exactly what our country needs right now, and it is exactly what people in Pennsylvania and all across America are clamoring for. Pat has proven that he will fight for taxpayers, while Congressman Sestak has proven that he will fight for his extreme friends like Nancy Pelosi. We need a true taxpayer hero like Pat in the U.S. Senate.”
“I’m honored to receive the endorsement of the Delaware County, Chester County, and Main Line Chambers of Commerce,” Pat Toomey said. “In these tough economic times, we need to fight for policies that will encourage businesses to grow and create jobs for Pennsylvanians. As a former small business owner, I know exactly what it takes to encourage businesses to thrive. I’m pleased that the Delaware County Chamber of Commerce supports my vision to grow our economy.”
