Flashback: Orrin Hatch: Toomey has no shot…
“I don’t think there is anybody in the world who believes he can get elected senator there,” said Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, the vice chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee.
Asked if the NRSC would back Toomey, Hatch said, “I don’t think so” and that the party should look for “someone who can win there.”
William Parker: Toomey should withdraw…
The founder and former president of the Pennsylvania Club for Growth said Pat Toomey can’t win the general election for U.S. Senate and ought to withdraw from the Republican primary.
“Republicans should be concerned about Toomey’s ability to hold together the GOP coalition, as well as whether he can appeal to blue-collar voters.”
