Pat Toomey has a more important contest coming up in 2016 -- and no, we're not talking about an appearance on Family Feud -- but that doesn't mean the Republican U.S. senator doesn't take the annual Keystone Cup game seriously.
Toomey and a team of his staffers -- called Hit It Toomey -- took an early lead on Penn Is Mightier -- the team fielded by Democratic Sen. Bob Casey and his staff -- and held it to win this year's edition of the all-Pennsylvania sofrball game, 19-7. The game was held Monday on the National Mall.
"During the workday, our offices work together in a bipartisan fashion for the people of Pennsylvania. But the Keystone Cup softball game is for bragging rights," Mr. Toomey, his team's second baseman, said in a statement. "We take this game seriously and we've been preparing since the unfortunate outcome last summer. I am extremely proud of our win and look forward to squaring off again next year."
Monday's win gave Team Toomey a 3-2 series lead.
