Republican Sen. Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania—the only embattled Republican who refused for the duration of the campaign to say which presidential candidate he would vote for—finally revealed his pick Tuesday evening. Toomey says he voted for Donald Trump. The revelation comes just over an hour before Pennsylvania’s 8 p.m. poll-closing time.

Toomey is in a tight race Tuesday to keep his seat against Democratic challenger Katie McGinty. Pennsylvania is also a key swing state in the presidential race.
