Wolf Wins Democratic Nomination for Governor

According to unofficial results, Wolf won more votes than challengers U.S. Rep. Allyson Schwartz and state Treasurer Rob McCord.

Tom Wolf has prevailed in the Democratic primary for governor and will face Tom Corbett in the fall. Corbett was unopposed in the Republican primary. 

The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that Wolf, a businessman from York County, has secured the Democratic nomination. According to unofficial results, Wolf won more votes than challengers U.S. Rep. Allyson Schwartz and state Treasurer Rob McCord.

Wolf, 65, served as Pennsylvania Secretary of Revenue under the Rendell Administration.  

He attended Dartmouth College and went on to earn a PhD from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He served in the Peace Corps and later went on to operate his family-owned business, the Wolf Organization. 

Corbett's campaign issued a statement within minutes of Wolf's win. “While Tom Corbett is bringing commonsense solutions to Pennsylvania, Tom Wolf wants to push more Pennsylvanians into Obamacare and pull us backward to the days of overtaxing and reckless spending," the Corbett campaign said in a statement.

But, but, what about income inequality? What about u hogging all the Earth's resources? Damning us all to Global Warming, Climate Change, er Climate Disruption with your gas guzzling cars, huge houses and extensive air travel? And how you don't pay your fair share? Well? Well? .................................................................................................... How did you get all your your money? You didn't earn it. We helped you make that money with public schools and highways, etc., etc., etc. And you don't pay YOUR FAIR SHARE! Your hoarded resources need to be liberated for the collective good!

Joining the peace corps is a very Nobel and unselfish thing to do. I believe the government or the PC pays for your travel. But you do give back by helping the poor nation, building houses and schools. I wish I had done it when I learned about it in High School.
