Former U.S. Rep. Pat Toomey is trying to raise hopes and money for his run for the U.S. Senate after Republican Scott Brown defeated Democrat Martha Coakley in a Massachusetts special election for a Senate seat yesterday.

Toomey, who nearly defeated U.S. Sen. Arlen Specter in a primary election battle six years ago, sent an e-mail to his supporters this morning with the title "Voters send clear message in MA, PA Next."

Specter jumped from the Republican to the Democratic party last year, saying he didn't want his record in the Senate judged by Pennsylvania's GOP primary voters.

Here's Toomey's e-mail:

An amazing thing happened last night in Massachusetts. Voters in one of the bluest states in the country made their voices heard and elected Republican Scott Brown to the U.S. Senate, picking up a seat that's been in Democratic hands since 1953.

Brown's victory was a public rejection of the Democrats’ one-party extremism and massive $1 trillion health care bill. It is clear that voters across the country are sick of the sweetheart deals, massive tax increases, and out-of-control deficit spending that the Democrats have been trying to ram through Congress.

Scott Brown's win last evening demonstrates that we can win in Pennsylvania, but I need your help to do it. Please take a moment to help our campaign deliver a victory for the hardworking men and women of Pennsylvania by making a donation of $10, $25, $50 or even $100 right now.

Voters in Pennsylvania, as in Massachusetts, don’t want to send a Harry Reid/Nancy Pelosi rubber stamp to the Senate. They want a leader who will fight to protect their hard-earned money and rein in Congress’ insatiable appetite to spend.

Massachusetts voters sent the liberal leadership in Washington a powerful message Tuesday night. Let's work together in 2010 and earn our victory this November in Pennsylvania.
