PA-Gov: Corbett Releases Radio Attack Ad
“And Wolf was a job killing bureaucrat,” the voice adds later on.
The Corbett and Jim Cawley slate today unveiled “Twice as Bad,” an audio attack on Congresswoman Schwartz and businessman Tom Wolf.
The ad rebukes Schwartz for her support of Obamacare and her pro-gun control stance.
“Schwartz has voted with Obama’s liberal agenda almost unanimously. Schwartz even helped write disastrous Obamacare. And Schwartz is so extreme on gun control, the NRA graded her an F,” the ad says.
As for Wolf, the ad discusses his past as Pa’s former Revenue Secretary — or, as the ad puts it, “the top tax collector.”
“On Wolf’s watch, taxes were high, killing 100,000 PA jobs and our unemployment went up almost 50%.
“But the real insult? Wolf is a millionaire, but he fought to increase taxes on average Pennsylvanians including higher taxes on home heating and the sales tax.”
The ad playfully changes Wolf’s slogan from “A Fresh Start for Pennsylvania” to “Tom Wolf: High taxes, Fewer Jobs.”
Corbett’s campaign manager, Mike Barley, said that the ad gives voters pertinent information regarding two of more formidable Democratic candidates in the race.
“Pennsylvania voters need to know the truth about extreme liberal Congresswoman Allyson Schwartz and millionaire Secretary Tom Wolf,” Barley said. “Our ad shines a light on the soft spot Congresswoman Schwartz has for the liberal President Barack Obama agenda and millionaire Secretary Tom Wolf’s desire to hike taxes on middle class Pennsylvania families.”
The ad is further evidence that Corbett is bypassing the primary and focusing solely on the tough general election that is soon to come.
