PA-Gov: Corbett and Wolf Bring in Big Names for Debate Prep

Wolf CorbettWe’re just hours away from the first gubernatorial debate of the election and the candidates should be well prepared.

In order to get ready for the event, campaigns typically conducted mock debates for practice. The candidate will participate answers to anticipated questions and often someone will fill in for the opponent.

The person who plays the other candidate can range from anyone to a staffer to a former Governor it seems.

PoliticsPA has learned that former Governor Mark Schweiker played Wolf in the Corbett campaign’s debate sessions.

Meanwhile, former New Jersey Congressman Rob Andrews took on the role of Governor Corbett in order to prep the Democratic nominee.

The Corbett and Wolf campaigns refused to confirm or deny whether these men participated.

The debate is scheduled to take place at 7:30 at the PA Chamber Dinner in Hershey.

Update: The Corbett campaign told PoliticsPA that Lt. Governor Jim Cawley stood in for Wolf during debate sessions.

  1. Race-
    Now we have taxes and cuts to services by a governor who doesn’t understand the function of government.

    What happens if Wolf raises taxes? Roads get paved. Teachers get rehired. Unemployment goes down. Economy improves.

    Also, with Wolf, we don’t have to worry about a governor who wants to take away voting rights.

  2. No debates are necessary. if you are backing Wolf you must have been in a coma for the past 10 years. Rendell tanked this state with the help of the TAX MAN Wolf.. Better think real hard about letting go of Corbett unless of course you love high taxes, zero gov’t services and a whole lot of lying by a liberal which of course they are masters at.
