The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is out with a spot pointing out the similarities between former Rep. Pat Toomey and George W. Bush. It doesn't have them on stage together like the famous Sestak ad, but does have video of the Allentown man saying "I think the world of President Bush, I think he’s a fabulous President.”
The voting record claims are things we've seen before -- noting his opposition to much regulation of energy companies, and supporting corporate tax cuts and placing some measure of Social Security into the private market.
UPDATE: In a race that has been defined this anti-Washington year by both candidates trying to assert their outsider status, the Toomey camp was quick to note that the former congressman did not always vote with Bush and clashed with GOP leadership, largely over spending policy. Besides (and this seems contractually obligated at this point) if there are any similarities to point out, they are the ones between Joe Sestak and Nancy Pelosi.
"The Democrats’ attacks are laughable and a sure sign of a desperate campaign,” said Toomey spokeswoman Nachama Soloveichik in a statement “Let’s remember who supported the biggest spending measures of President Bush’s administrations – the bailouts of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, Wall Street, and the auto companies – that was Congressman Joe Sestak, while Pat opposed every single one of them."
