Tobé was elected to the Swedish Riksdag in the 2006 general election and was chair of its Committee on Employment from 2010 to 2012 and chair of the Committee on Education from 2012 to 2014. He was mentioned as possible successor for the party leadership after Fredrik Reinfeldt, but declined and supported Anna Kinberg Batra.
He is married to Markus Tobé with whom he has twins born via surrogacy.
In March 2017 there was controversy around Tobé after it was revealed that he had used public funds for wine purchases and personal trips. On 2 June 2017, he was removed from his position as party secretary by party leader Anna Kinberg Batra and appointed Shadow Minister for Justice and Chairman of the Parliament's Committee on Justice.
