Pennsylvania Senate candidate Pat Toomey (R) is leaving the campaign trail to spend more time with his growing family.

Toomey's wife Kris gave birth to a baby boy late last night, his campaign announced Wednesday.

Duncan Olin Toomey, the couple's third child, weighed in at 7 pounds, 2 ounces. Both mother and baby are doing well, the Toomey camp said.

The former congressman canceled all his campaign events for Wednesday and "will be taking a short respite from the campaign trail to spend some time with his wife and three children."

Toomey, in a statement: "Kris and I are very grateful for all the well wishes we've received from so many people and look forward to being back on the campaign trail soon."

The Pennsylvania primary is May 18 but Toomey is expected to win the GOP nod handily.
