Early Returns' special correspondent Ed Blazina caught up with our governor Friday and got his thoughts on some of the early, anti-Democratic ads in the campaign to see whether he gets a second term. Ed's report:
Who says Gov. Tom Corbett doesn't care about education?
Mr. Corbett, unopposed for the Republican nomination for the-election,nonetheless has been spending money on campaign ads and brochures. Many of them have been aimed at Democratic front runner Tom Wolf.
All part of educating the electorate, he said.
"We're educating," Mr. Corbett said after a news conference at the Allegheny County Courthouse about how formation of a working group to fight heroin addiction and prescription drug abuse.
"It's an educating process," the governor said. "(The Democratic
candidates) have been spending millions against me."
Although the governor's ads seem aimed at Mr. Wolf, Mr. Corbett said he has no preference or expectation who his challenger might be.
