Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) today announced his support for the University of Pennsylvania President, Dr. Amy Gutmann, to serve as U.S. Ambassador to Germany.
“The United States’ relationship with Germany is particularly important for our economy, national security, and global standing. The next U.S. ambassador to Germany must be a proven leader with the ability to advocate for American interests. Dr. Gutmann is well suited for the job given her vast experience in leading one of America’s premier institutions of higher learning—the University of Pennsylvania—and advocating for it on the world stage. As a respected scholar in education, ethics, and democratic governance, she has the knowledge and skills to meet the challenge. I look forward to supporting her nomination and urge my colleagues to do the same,” said Senator Toomey.
