Toomey to NRO

“We don’t have the votes.”

Over breakfast today on Capitol Hill, Senator Pat Toomey (R., Pa.) told National Review that his legislation to expand background checks faces an uncertain future. “As we sit here this morning, we don’t have the votes,” he said.

“Now, there are enough undecided people that it’s still possible, but I’ll be the first to admit that there is a very, very narrow path to get to 60 votes,” Toomey said, in an interview hours before the bipartisan plan is scheduled to be considered on the floor.

“It’s disappointing when you put a lot of work into something, and you’re out there in a public way and it doesn’t come together,” he said. “It’s disappointing, but it’s part of this business.”

Keep the pressure ON.

    A little early in the day for Toomey to be indulging in that much whine.
