Senate -- Pennsylvania -- Republican Primary

Former Congressman Pat Toomey is unopposed in Tuesday's Republican primary for the U.S. Senate, here in Pennsylvania.

Toomey, 48, represented Pennsylvania in the U.S. House from 1999 to 2005. In 2004, he unsuccessfully sought the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate. Toomey lost a close primary contest against Senator Arlen Specter, who might be Toomey's Democratic opponent this time.

In the meantime, Toomey was president of the Club for Growth, whose PAC had provided much of the financing for his primary run against Specter.
