The campaigns for Gov. Tom Corbett and Democratic challenger Tom Wolf traded shots over education funding, natural gas drilling and other issues before Wolf won his party’s nomination.
Voters can expect a lot more of that before Nov. 4.
“I think it’s going to be a long, grueling contest, in which both candidates are going to have to defend an awful lot about their records,” said G. Terry Madonna, a pollster and political science professor at Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster.
Corbett has had lower approval ratings than Tom Ridge and Ed Rendell had at the same points in their first terms. In a January poll from Franklin & Marshall College, 23 percent of registered Pennsylvania voters said Corbett was doing an “excellent” or “good” job as governor.

The biggest issue here in this year’s election for Governor should be jobs and tax cuts.I believe Tom Wolf will kill the jobs that have been created through energy drilling here in our state.Don’t get me wrong,I’m not a big fan of Tom Corbett either.The Transportation bill that he signed a few months back increases our already high gasoline prices.
We will wait and see how this campaign plays out.At this time,it’s too early to tell what will happen in November.
I just wish we had other choices here.
