Official portrait of Sen. Toomey

Senator Pat Toomey was elected to the U.S. Senate from Pennsylvania on a platform of limited government, economic and job growth, and restoring fiscal responsibility.

The Philadelphia Inquirer wrote that he has emerged as "a leading voice on money matters."

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.

The senator serves on the Finance; Banking; and Budget committees.

He previously served on the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction.

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.

In addition to his public service, the senator has also served as president of the Club for Growth, owned and operated a small restaurant chain in the Lehigh Valley, and worked in the financial services industry.

A graduate of Harvard University, he lives in Zionsville with his wife, Kris, and their three children.
