Every Pennsylvanian is represented by two US Senators. We can generally count on Senator Casey to support a progressive agenda, and we shouldn't forget to say thanks. And just because Toomey won't change his mind doesn't mean we shouldn't keep the pressure on!

Finance; Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions; Select Committee on Intelligence; Special Committee on Aging
Senator Pat Toomey (R)
