Former U.S. Rep. Pat Toomey is the Republican nominee to run for Senate in Pennsylvania.

Toomey won the nomination on Tuesday night, beating activist Peg Luksic (LUK'-sik).

Toomey lost the 2004 nomination to five-term Sen. Arlen Specter. But Specter switched to the Democratic Party last year after concluding he could not beat the more conservative Toomey again in a GOP primary.

The 48-year-old Toomey represented the Allentown area in Congress for six years after a career in the private sector working in finance and running restaurants. He went on to run the anti-tax group Club for Growth until last year.

Specter faced U.S. Rep. Joe Sestak in the Democratic primary.
