Governor Corbett hits on taxes in final campaign stops
Polls have consistently shown Governor Tom Corbett (R) behind Democratic opponent Tom Wolf. But on Monday, Corbett told Lancaster County voters he thinks he can win.
The governor says he’s in good spirits and he’s focused on Election Day. Republican supporters packed the terminal at the Lancaster Airport where he spoke.
“We have a very strong get-out-the-vote effort going on, we’ve been working on identifying voters for the last two years and we think we’re going to have a good turnout on Tuesday,” says Corbett.
Corbett says he’s made some gains in the polls because voters are worried about Wolf’s tax plan.
"I don't think the people of Pennsylvania are ready to be taxed more, are you?" Corbett asked the crowd. They shouted "No." "I didn't think so," he said.
Lt. Governor Jim Cawley called out Wolf for his record as Revenue Secretary under Governor Ed Rendell (D).
Cawley says Wolf called for an increase in the sales tax and the creation of new taxes on garbage, electricity and home heating oil, and he attacked Wolf's plan to raise some people's income tax.
"There's a Wolf at the door and he's wearing sheep's clothing," says Cawley.
