Washington, D.C. - U.S. Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) issued the following statement regarding the vote to confirm Mr. Robert Wilkie as Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA):

"Our veterans should be the first in line for the best possible care. I believe Robert Wilkie agrees with this sentiment and is a strong choice to head up the Department of Veterans Affairs," said Senator Toomey.
