The Republican Senate candidate in Pennsylvania says Democratic Rep. Joe Sestak should clarify what job the White House offered him to drop a primary challenge to Sen. Arlen Specter.
Speaking at an event Tuesday outside Philadelphia, Pat Toomey said he prefers to focus on issues but "it would be helpful" if Sestak cleared the air about the job offer.
Sestak and the White House have declined to discuss the offer in detail, but Sestak has said he was offered a job to avoid challenging Specter.
Sestak defeated Specter, a longtime Republican who switched parties last year, in last week's primary.
Toomey spoke at an appearance with Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele in Blue Bell.
A message left for Sestak's campaign manager was not immediately returned.
