Democratic candidate for governor and State Treasurer Rob McCord began running a new television spot this week called “Battled,” detailing how McCord has fought Governor Tom Corbett and won.
“When Corbett tried to hand the state lottery to a foreign firm, McCord said no, protecting Pennsylvania’s seniors” a deep voice narrates over videos of McCord working and speaking with seniors.
It also mentions that McCord is the only Democratic candidate who wants to raise the minimum wage to $10.70 an hour. This is opposed to the standard $10.10 that other candidates, such as Katie McGinty, are supporting.
Again, this is higher than the 5 percent that other candidates have envisioned, including Rep. Allyson Schwartz.
McCord’s first television ads aired last week, focusing on his childhood and early background.
In the race for governor, McCord faces Schwartz, McGinty, and former Revenue Secretary Tom Wolf.
