Toomey: ‘Governor Romney Was Correct’

by Robert Costa

“For me, the Specter race of 2004 is really ancient history,” says Senator Pat Toomey (R., Pa.) in an interview with National Review Online. “I do think it was a significant moment for the conservative movement, certainly in Pennsylvania, maybe beyond. I think Santorum made a mistake; he was on the wrong side. But I got over that a long time ago. I actually campaigned for Rick Santorum in 2006.”

“Having said that, Governor Romney was correct, pointing out one of the consequences of Senator Santorum’s decision. But that’s a distant memory now. I’m happily engaged in my work. I’ve got plenty to keep me busy. I don’t have to be looking in the rearview mirror.”
