Republican Pat Toomey Wins Pennsylvania US Senate Race Over Sestak … GOP+6, Corbett (R) Wins Governorship & Numerous House Races


It has been a tremendous night for the GOP in the “Keystone” state of Pennsylvania …

Republican Pat Toomey has been declared the winner in the Pennsylvania US Senate race over Democrat Joe Sestak. This is a GOP pick up of the Senate seat formerly held by Republican turned Democrat turned Democrat primary loser Senator Arlen Specter.  This is GOP pickup #6.

Pat Toomey, the Republican conservative and newly elected Pennsylvania senator, says the Democrat he defeated, Rep. Joe Sestak, served his country honorably.

Toomey was elected to Arlen Specter’s Senate seat Tuesday in one of the most hotly contested races in the nation.

Speaking at an Allentown-area hotel, Toomey told the crowd that “the people of Pennsylvania have spoken and they have delivered us a victory.”

Sestak conceded defeat in a speech at a suburban Philadelphia hotel in his congressional district. Holding his 9-year-old daughter, Alex, he told the crowd, “It is now Alex time.”

Add Republican Tom Corbett to the list of GOP wins in PA as he won the Governorship over Democrat Dan Onorato. But wait, it gets even better for Republican with House races.

Big pick ups by the GOP over Democrat incumbents in Pennsylvania:

  • U.S. House District 3 – Republican Kelly has defeated incumbent Democrat Dahlkemper.
  • U.S. House District 7 – Republican Meehan defeated Democrat Lentz
  • U.S. House District 10-  Carney (D)  45% –  Marino (R)  55%  
  • U.S. House District 11 –  Kanjorski (D)  45% –  Barletta (R)  55%  
  • U.S. House District 8 –  Murphy (D)  47% –  Fitzpatrick (R)  53%

      i am a southerner living in Pennsylvania and believe me this state does need to have their politics changed. they have too many people on welfare and disability. they have too many young UN-wed mothers, they have too many young people, ages 20 to 30 years of age, that do not vote.there are not jobs of significance here.

      most of their votes come from Pittsburgh and Philly. their cities are run down and old. the school’s union is where all their money goes and the education here is bleak.

      can’t wait to get back to living in the beautiful south again. people are friendly and optimistic, as their politics reflect.

      Dear Senator Toomey

      The recently Supreme Court – created precedent of corporations enjoying constitutional rights that were intended solely for human beings. We believe this form of corporate personhood corrupts our Constitution and must be corrected by amending the Constitution.

      Neither the Declaration of Independence nor the Constitution ever mention corporations, which were rare entities at our nation’s founding. But thanks to decades of rulings by Justices who molded the law to favor elite interests, corporations today are granted privileges that empower them to deny citizens the right to full self-governance.

      With all due respect,
      MacDonald Heebner III
      SM: I am assuming that you are against Unions having the privaledge of sonationg to candidates as well?
