Politico: NRSC abandoning Toomey?

The National Republican Senatorial Committee is recruiting Rep. Jim Gerlach (R-Pa.) to run for the Senate because it views Pat Toomey as unelectable against Sen. Arlen Specter, according to Gerlach’s lead consultant.

According to Gerlach consultant Mark Campbell, Cornyn reached out to Gerlach this morning, and the two are expected to chat about the Senate race this afternoon.

“They are interested in Jim running for the United States Senate,” said Campbell. “The senatorial committee has told me that Toomey is unelectable in a general election.”
