PA-Gov: Tom Wolf Elected Governor
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.
