In a sure sign that the general election has started, the Pennsylvania Republican Party has launched TomWolfFacts.com, an effort to expose the Democratic nominee.
“Tom Wolf has spent millions of dollars building an image of himself that’s shadowed in secrecy,” PA Republican Party Chairman Rob Gleason said. “By launching TomWolfFacts.com, we want to bring the facts to light for voters about Tom Wolf’s checkered past as well as his plans to tax-and-spend Pennsylvanians in the future.”
“Pennsylvanians deserve to learn the whole story about Tom Wolf, and we’re excited to share it with them at TomWolfFacts.com.”
Complete with unflattering photos and accusations, this venture is the latest in a long-running trend of anti-candidate websites being set up by the opposition party. For instance, last November the PA Democratic Party launched kickoutcorbett.com.
TomWolfFacts.com currently focuses much of its efforts on portraying Wolf as a tax-raiser, in line with recent a recent Corbett ad. It also repeats Allyson Schwartz’s plagiarism charge from last month.
The general election between Gov. Tom Corbett and Sec. Tom Wolf takes place on November 4th.
