Casey, Toomey to Sit Together at SOTU

Senators Bob Casey (D-PA) and Pat Toomey (R-PA) “announced Friday that they’ll be sitting side-by-side next week when President Obama makes his annual [State of the Union] address,” the Morning Call reports.

"The simple act of sitting together in a normally divided chamber will send an important signal that legislating shouldn’t be about taking partisan sides," Casey said. "Senator Toomey and I will sit together as public officials representing all the people of Pennsylvania. I look forward to working together and hope the bipartisan spirit will continue for all Members of Congress."

"I am proud to sit with my fellow colleague from Pennsylvania, Senator Bob Casey," Senator Toomey said. "There will be many opportunities for us to work together in the 112th Congress, and sitting next to each other is a small, but important step towards setting a civil and cooperative tone for the challenging work ahead of us."
