The Democratic nominee prevailed at the close of polls at 8.
Wolf’s star rose throughout year thanks to his engaging personal story, which involved running his successful family company, serving a stint in Peace Corps, and driving that ubiquitous Jeep.
Of course, the $10 million contribution to his campaign helped too.
Still, it appears to be quite a large and historic victory for the York County native.
Meanwhile, Tom Corbett becomes the first Governor in the history of PA to lose re-election. Since the 1968 Constitution allowed incumbents to run for a second term, five straights Governors had won re-election.
Gov. Corbett will continue to serve until January 2015, when Wolf will be sworn in.
