PA-Gov: Corbett Pokes Fun At Wolf and His Jeep in New Ad (VIDEO)

Governor Tom Corbett released a television ad Thursday entitled “Toy Story”, calling out Democratic gubernatorial candidate Tom Wolf for certain actions during his time as the state’s revenue secretary.

“We are excited to introduce Pennsylvania to the real Tom Wolf, who is nothing more than a wolf in sheep’s clothing,” stated Corbett-Cawley campaign manager Mike Barley. “Millionaire Secretary Tom Wolf is spending millions of dollars of his personal wealth to disguise himself as an outsider who understands job creation, but his record of begging for tax increases and support for policies that have led to massive job loss as Revenue Secretary tells a much different story, and that is a story that the Pennsylvanians deserve to hear.”

“Tom Wolf’s record on jobs is a car wreck,” the ad begins as a Jeep rolls up with a license plate bearing the word ‘Wolf’.

“While Wolf served in Harrisburg as our state’s top tax collector, our taxes went through the roof,” a voice narrates. The ad also cites information from the Bureau of Labor Statistics which state that higher taxes during Wolf’s reign as revenue secretary led to the loss of jobs for 152,000 PA workers and unemployment rising nearly 50 percent.

At this point, a massive pick-up truck roars to a stop next to the Jeep, this license plate reading “Corbett”. “Fortunately, Tom Corbett came along and cleaned up Wolf’s mess,” the ad says.

“Corbett lowered taxes, creating 150,000 new jobs, and PA’s unemployment dramatically fell.”

Perhaps operating purely by the polls, Corbett has chosen the Democratic candidate who’s currently in the lead. Seeing as how he just lost his only Republican primary opponent, the governor and Cawley will now be able to focus all of their firing power at Wolf and his fellow Dems: State Treasurer Rob McCord, Rep. Allyson Schwartz and former DEP Secretary Katie McGinty.

  1. Chuck, it is common practice for the incumbent to attack the other party’s front runner. It has nothing to do with who he’d prefer to run against.

  2. I don’t know, Chuck. If Corbett wanted to run against Wolf, he wouldn’t be attacking him during the primary.

  3. Dear PAINDY,
    The party doesn’t like me, but I DO like the horses in Loudon County. You should try it sometime. Re: Santorum, you can sell straw for gold, but you can’t spin it into gold.

  4. I guess we know who Corbett wants to run against. Wolf’s baggage make him an easy target for Corbett’s inevitable campaign of dirt dishing. I hope Dems realize they need to nominate a hard target for this stuff–Rob McCord.

  5. Dear Unsanctioned R: Ask Ricky Santorum about the awesomeness of Acting Governor Brabender! Are you one of those service-minded folks committing political necrophilia and don’t want the party to stop?

  6. I didn’t know the tax collector set tax rates. And I didn’t know Tom Wolf caused the Great Recession.

  7. Corbett reduced corporate taxes. Corporations don’t vote. More lies and distortions.

  8. Tom wolf a jeep.tom Corbett a dodge.there is no difference between them.they are both Chrysler products.
