Toomey, Casey to display bipartisanship again

As they have in the past, U.S. Sen. Bob Casey, D-Pa., and U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pa., will sit together during President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address Tuesday night.

Democrats and Republicans have traditionally sat on different sides of the House chamber during the SOTU until 2011.

“Our nation confronts a host of challenges that will require serious bipartisan solutions,” Casey said in a statement.

“Sen. Toomey and I work together regularly on behalf of Pennsylvanians. I look forward to once again sitting with him at the State of the Union and hope this small gesture will help foster a spirit of bipartanship in Congress,” he said.

Toomey said he will be “proud to sit with my fellow colleague from Pennsylvania. … We plan to work together – as we have in the past – to help our fellow Pennsylvanians. Bipartisan seating at the president’s speech is symbolic and sets a civil and cooperative tone for the challenging work ahead of us.”
