Katie McGinty vs. Pat Toomey: Who is the Better Choice?

Editor’s Note: This opinion piece was written by Chloe DeVitis (BU Democrats, Cyber Communications Coordinator).

In the elections coming up, it is important to remember that Katie McGinty is the smartest, safest choice for the Senate, especially compared to Pat Toomey. McGinty will expand opportunities for energy and crack down on protecting the environment.

Toomey fails to even mention the importance of protecting the environment by refusing to put it under the Issues on his official website. Besides protecting the environment, McGinty also wants to expand antidiscrimination protection for the LGBTQ community and wants to make sure transgender Americans have the ability to serve in the military.

Once again, Toomey doesn’t even mention once anything related to the LGBTQ community. Also, if you look at Toomey’s voting record he voted YES on making it a crime to transport minors across state lines for the purpose of abortions and YES on funding health providers that refuse to provide information on abortions.

There are two big choices for the Senate this election. You can choose the one that is indifferent to basic women’s rights, the LGBTQ community, and the environment, or you can choose McGinty.
