Monday was the first debate between U.S. Senate candidates Pat Toomey, the Republican incumbent, and his opponent Katie McGinty. While they covered topics from the Affordable Care Act to campaign funding, they were also asked multiple times about Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. And Toomey, who has noted his disagreements with Trump, said: “I have not reached a point where I can endorse Donald Trump, because I have so many concerns about his candidacy.”
The polls might be an indicator of just why U.S. Senator Pat Toomey hasn’t said yay or nay when it comes to Trump. In his race with Katie McGinty, the polls are too close to tell, and experts said Toomey may be trying to get as many voter bases as possible by not saying his vote for president. So is Toomey winning? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger had surgery yesterday on a torn meniscus. But who knows how long he’ll be out. And if it seems like he’s out a lot, well you’re not wrong — in a dozen years with the Steelers, the quarterback has already missed more than a full season, not counting this injury. So for now, all eyes on Landry Jones.

THE INCLINE LIKES
The deadline is approaching. You have until Friday to nominate someone for Who’s Next. We’re starting by shining a spotlight on great communicators under 40 from advertising, corporate communications, marketing and/or public relations, and we want to hear about the best of the best.
It’s the last time to see Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton face off before one of them becomes president (gulp). This time, they are in Sin City on Wednesday and will discuss six topics: debt, immigration, the economy, the Supreme Court, foreign hot spots and how fit the candidates are to be president. You know you don’t want to watch it alone, so The Incline collected a list of watch parties. One of those parties happens to be with us! We’re hosting a free (!) presidential debate watch party at Troy Hill’s Scratch Food and Beverage. There will be $8 cocktails and candidate-themed drinks for $2.50, one of which may or may not be served on fire. Find out more here.
