    U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey says he’s voting against Dr. Rachel Levine’s nomination to a key post in President Joe Biden’s administration. Biden wants Levine, Pennsylvania’s former health secretary, to serve as the U.S. assistant health secretary. The post requires U.S. Senate confirmation. A Senate panel has advanced Levine’s nomination to the full Senate. The Senate is expected to vote on Levine’s nomination Wednesday. But Toomey, R-Pa., said Wednesday he won’t be supporting Levine’s confirmation. He cited the high number of deaths in Pennsylvania nursing homes to the coronavirus. “In Pennsylvania, the pandemic struck seniors in nursing homes disproportionately hard compared...

    Retiring Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA), who voted to convict Donald Trump in his second impeachment trial, said Friday on Fox News Channel’s “Your World with Neil Cavuto” that the former president will not be the Republican Party’s presidential nominee in 2024. Cavuto said, “I know you’re leaving the Senate. You got into a storm of controversy with your own state GOP because you voted to convict the president in the impeachment trial in the Senate. Do you look back at that and have any regrets and the wrath you have received for that vote and the criticism of the president...

    A sharply-split Republican State Committee in Pennsylvania voted Monday night to again express its displeasure with Sen. Pat Toomey’s vote last month to convict former President Donald J. Trump on an article of impeachment, but stopped short of voting to censure him. Committee members were given the choice of voting for a statement proposed by Chairman Lawrence Tabas that “strongly rebukes but does not censure” Toomey, and a second statement that does censure him. The censure movement was blocked by a narrow 128-124 margin, with 13 abstentions, according to a source who had been briefed on the results. The difference...

The committee held a special meeting on Wednesday, with members voting 94-2 to censure the senator.

    “It’s my party, and I’ll cry if I want to,” sang Lesley Gore in 1964, in the chorus to a song about a young teen betrayed in the worst way by her guy. “You would cry too if it happened to you!” The Republican Party in Pennsylvania appears to be having its own Lesley Gore moment now, as a number of county party committees have taken action this week to condemn the U.S. Senator Pat Toomey, R-Allentown, for his vote last week to convict former President Donald J. Trump of inciting violence at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. Saturday’s...

    The York County Republican Committee late Saturday censured U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey following his decision to find former President Donald Trump guilty at the end of the weeklong impeachment trial. Trump was acquitted by a 57-43 Senate vote. The committee in its press release said that Toomey’s voting record over the past four years runs counter to the principles of the GOP and that he’s out of touch with the core beliefs of Pennsylvania Republicans. “For the past four years Sen. Toomey sat silently as a hyper-partisan Democrat Congress relentlessly attacked President Trump, impeaching him twice on fabricated charges,” said...

    Pennsylvania’s larger-than-life lieutenant governor, the 6-foot-8, bald and tattooed John Fetterman, will run for U.S. Senate, making the announcement Monday after kicking off an exploratory fundraising campaign last month that raised over $1 million. It will be the second bid for U.S. Senate by the plainspoken 51-year-old Democrat. He may ultimately see competition from a member of Congress for his party’s nomination in what could become the nation’s most competitive Senate race in 2022. Meanwhile, on the Republican side, a number of names are circulating — including former Trump administration figures. Another possibility is Jeff Bartos, a suburban Philadelphia real...

    Senator Pat Toomey (R-PA) said Sunday on CNN’s”State of the Union” that former President Donald Trump’s impeachment was “clearly constitutional.” Anchor Jake Tapper said, “Just days after the Capitol riot, you came on the show, you said President Trump conducted impeachable offenses, he should resign, he could face criminal liability. Some of your colleagues have said he should be acquitted in the Senate trial on Tuesday. Are you going to vote to hold him accountable?”

    Republican Sen. Pat Toomey on Sunday called for President Trump to resign because of the riots carried out by his supporters at the US Capitol last Wednesday, doubting whether there is time left in his presidency for impeachment to make its way through Congress. “I think the best way for our country … is for the president to resign and go away as soon as possible. I acknowledge that may not be likely, but I think that would be best,” the Pennsylvania lawmaker said on NBC News’ “Meet the Press.” “It does not look as though there is the will...

    ---snip--- President Trump committed impeachable offenses that disqualify him from serving. “I do think the president committed impeachable offenses but I don’t know what’s going to land on the Senate floor,” Toomey told “The Journal Editorial Report” on Fox News. Toomey, however, waffled on whether Congress should move forward with impeachment given President-elect Joe Biden will take power on Jan. 20. “I have to say I do think the president’s behavior this week does disqualify him from serving but we’ve got 10 days,” Toomey said. The Pennsylvania senator said he’s unsure whether it’s logistically possible, practical or desirable to try...

    Members of Pennsylvania’s congressional delegation described the violence at the U.S. Capitol as a “disgrace” and “unacceptable.” Supporters of President Donald Trump stormed the Capitol as Congress met Wednesday to count the electoral votes, a final procedural step before Joe Biden becomes the nation’s 46th president. Members of Congress, Vice President Mike Pence and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris were ushered out of the Capitol in an unimaginable scene garnering worldwide attention....U.S. Sen.

    U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey on Saturday decried the effort by some members of his party to oppose the certification of the presidential election results. A coalition of 11 Republican senators, led by Ted Cruz of Texas, announced it will challenge the outcome of the presidential election by voting to reject electors from some states when Congress meets next week to certify the Electoral College results that confirmed President-elect Joe Biden won.

Pat Toomey (PA-R) and others raise concerns about his plans — along with at least 11 other GOP senators — to object to the electoral vote count when a joint session of Congress meets Jan. 6, per email sent to Senate GOP Conference tonight. Hawley told Toomey that instead of debating the issue by press release, Toomey should perhaps debate him on the Senate floor. Read full statement:

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) on Saturday offered blistering criticism of a plan by at least 12 Republican senators to challenge the results of the election next week, warning that they "imperil" public trust. “The egregious ploy to reject electors may enhance the political ambition of some, but dangerously threatens our Democratic Republic. The congressional power to reject electors is reserved for the most extreme and unusual circumstances. These are far from it," Romney said in a statement. Romney had previously told reporters Friday that objecting during Wednesday's joint session, where Congress will formally count the Electoral College vote, would help...

    Wednesday on CNBC’s “Squawk Box,” Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA) discussed why he is “strongly opposed” to increase the coronavirus stimulus checks to individuals from $600 to $2,000. Congress initially agreed on a $600 payout, but President Donald Trump has been fighting for the checks to be $2,000. Toomey said the economy “is in such a completely different place today” than in March when the CARES Act sent out $1,200 to individuals was passed. He noted that there was “33 percent economic growth in the third quarter,” so it is “not the same situation” as it was in the early stages...

Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) on Sunday urged President Trump to sign the coronavirus aid package that has passed Congress, warning the president’s legacy is at stake. “You don’t get everything you want, even if you’re president of the United States,” Toomey said on “Fox News Sunday.” “I think the COVID relief measures are really, really important.” “In my state, as in many other states, we have governors who are closing down businesses again,” he added. Toomey called it a “hopeful sign” that Trump has not yet vetoed the bill passed by Congress, even as he has demanded larger direct payments...
