“I think I might borrow from Chris’s speech there in terms of Pat Toomey. He’s an asshole, dammit,” McGinty proclaimed.

The Senate Leadership Fund, a group designed to ensure Republicans maintain the Senate, fired out an email immediately, according to The Hill, “Katie McGinty showed absolutely zero class in using profanity to insult Sen. Pat Toomey on the campaign trail.”

McGinty’s remarks occur around the 16-minute mark in the video, which was posted by the living wage group “Raise It Damn It.”

The National Republican Senatorial Committee criticized McGinty’s remarks, The Hill reported, asking if Democratic leadership condoned “this type of language and name calling?”

“I regret the language I used and apologize to Senator Toomey. Our campaign is about moving Pennsylvania forward and we’re going to continue to talk about the issues that are important to Pennsylvania families,” McGinty told The Philadelphia Enquirer in an email from her spokesperson.

McGinty overturned Toomey’s lead in the polls in an NBC poll published in mid-July, earning a three-point lead, at 47 to 44 percent. The Real Clear Average still gives Toomey a slight edge in the race.

Here’s a little more on McGinty:

Constitution.com 🇺🇸

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
