Pennsylvania Democratic Senate candidate Katie McGinty is calling on her opponent, incumbent Republican Patrick J. Toomey, to defend the honor of the state capital.
Trump said Harrisburg “looked like a war zone” from his plane when speaking in Virginia on Tuesday, drawing McGinty’s ire.
“It is incumbent on Pat Toomey to stand up and say something,” McGinty said Tuesday at a Bucks County campaign stop.

Toomey, who backed Sen. Marco Rubio in the Republican presidential primary, has yet to endorse Trump. But he said last month that he still hopes “to get to the point where I’m fully supporting him.”
