Dems to launch video attacking Toomey's Wall St. past

Even before former Rep. Pat Toomey was declared the winner of the Republican primary for U.S. Senate, Democrats were preparing to launch a video attacking his Wall Street past and opposition to financial reforms.

The Democrats don't have a U.S. Senate nominee yet in Pennsylvania, but they're ready to take on the Republican candidate, Pat Toomey.

Party officials are planning to release a video soon that highlights Toomey's past as a Wall Street trader and to blast him for opposition to proposed financial-market reforms.

"Democrats are going to work very hard between now and November to make sure voters know about Toomey's record profiting off the reckless excesses of Wall Street, his coddling of bankers' interests while in Congress and his opposition to job saving legislation while a candidate," a Democratic strategist said.
