McGinty, Toomey make last pitch in Philly suburb

BRISTOL, Pa. (AP) – Democrat Katie McGinty and the man she’s hoping to unseat, Republican U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey, are campaigning just miles from each other as they make final pitches to voters in Pennsylvania’s must-win region of suburban Philadelphia.

Toomey was sprinting to at least six events Saturday across Philadelphia’s suburbs. At a morning event in West Chester, he criticized McGinty as a “rubber stamp” for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and warned that a McGinty victory would tip Senate control to Democrats so they could let Clinton run the country by “executive fiat.”

At an event with Vice President Joe Biden in Bristol, McGinty criticized Toomey for refusing to say whether he’ll vote for Repubican presidential nominee Donald Trump. She says Toomey’s too afraid to do the “right thing” because it would cost him a few votes.
