FAYETTEVILLE, Pa. -- U.S. Senate candidate Pat Toomey said Tuesday he'll win in Franklin County, Pa., but he wants supporters to help him do so by a wide margin.
Toomey, a Republican, is running against Democrat Joe Sestak for the Senate seat held for five terms by Arlen Specter. Specter changed parties to become a Democrat and was beat out by Sestak in the primary.
On Tuesday, Toomey made a campaign stop at Norlo Park east of Chambersburg, Pa. He was greeted by approximately 50 supporters and 10 people holding Sestak signs.
The visit to Franklin County came on the second day of a four-day, 21-county tour themed "More Jobs, Less Government."
"I know we're going to win Franklin County," Toomey said in the heavily Republican county, "but we've got to win it big. We have to win this whole region big because there are other areas of the state that are tough."
