Pat Toomey Keeps Senate Sweet with Asher’s Chocolates

U.S. Senators Pat Toomey (R-Pa.), seen here, and Bob Casey (D-Pa.) and Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick (Pa.-01) introduced legislation to increase criminal penalties for the stalking of children and to ensure law enforcement officials evaluate and update practices to combat online harassment of children.

asher's LogoThe big responsibility of keeping the Senate’s Candy Desk well stocked up with sweets has been given to Pennsylvania’s own Senator Pat Toomey.

The Candy Desk, which is in the back row of the Republican side by the Chamber’s most heavily used entrance, has been a mainstay of Congress since 1965.

Now Tooney has promised his colleagues to stock the Candy Desk with the finest sweets from Pennsylvania.

“We are home to the best confectioners in the world,” enthused Toomey.

Hershey’s, of course, is headquartered in Central Pennsylvania. Mars makes Three Musketeers in Elizabethtown and we are proud of our smaller candy makers too including Asher’s in Kulpsville, Wilbur Chocolate in Lititz, Josh Early Chocolates in the Lehigh Valley, and many, many more.”
