Pat Toomey’s chosen presidential candidate, Donald Trump, is making a pit stop in Philadelphia today to try and do something — anything — about getting zero percent of African American support in the latest polls.
While Trump might out-gun Toomey in the “offensive, racist” category, Toomey’s policies are just as harmful for African Americans.
Throughout his career, Pat Toomey has tried to make it harder for people to vote. He supported Pennsylvania’s strict voter ID legislation that would’ve put onerous restrictions on minority, elderly, poor, and young voters. The kicker: A judge said the law could arguably be unconstitutional and put it on hold.
Why does Pat Toomey continue to hurt African Americans with his policies? He’s no better than Donald Trump.
