Pat Toomey, U. S. Senator was elected to the U.S. Senate from Pennsylvania in 2010 on a platform of limited government, economic and job growth, and restoring fiscal responsibility. He was re-elected in 2016.
Since joining the Senate in 2011, he has distinguished himself as a leader on economic, financial services and budgetary issues, striving to restore fiscal discipline to Washington and economic opportunity for all Americans.
In 2012, Sen. Toomey helped write and enact the bipartisan JOBS Act, which cuts regulatory burdens on small and medium-sized businesses making it easier for them to raise capital and create jobs.
Sen. Toomey previously served in Congress as a member of the House of Representatives from Pennsylvania's 15 Congressional District, where he championed economic growth and fiscal discipline. Honoring his pledge to limit himself to three terms, he did not seek re-election to the House in 2004.
