When Tom Wolf (D) arrived in Lancaster he was met by a crowd of supporters, all ready to cast their vote for who they think should be governor. Wolf used the opportunity to express how he thinks Gov. Tom Corbett (R) has failed. "We have to make education a priority, he has not. We have to create good jobs in Pennsylvania. He has not done that. We've gone from the top of the list to the bottom of the list in terms of job creation," said Wolf.

Wolf also talked about charter schools, likening them to private schools and acknowledging that they could be a nice complement to public schools. He also spoke about a proposed pipeline which would run through parts of Lancaster County. "I think that if the folks that want to build the pipeline want people in Lancaster's support then there ought to be a severance tax that would allow the industry to help pay for the schools in Lancaster County," said Wolf.

Lancaster was one of the last stops in a campaign that has dragged on for the last year and a half. On Sunday Wolf was in Philadelphia where he got support from President Obama. The President characterized the race as a choice between trickle down economics with Corbett as opposed to policies that strengthen the middle class with Wolf. However Republicans also took advantage of the unpopular view that many have of the President, likening a vote for Wolf to a vote for Obama.
