Tom Wolf’s campaign is delivering a double-barreled blast to Governor Corbett’s economic record.
The Wolf camp is simultaneously releasing two new TV ads that criticize the Governor’s performance during his first term.
The first thirty-second spot is titled “Even worse”, and uses news footage to make the case to voters that the commonwealth’s economy isn’t getting any better.
“Over the past four years, Pennsylvania has gone from 9th to 47th in job creation,” a female narrator states, “and now news about our economy is getting even worse.”
The ad concludes with the tagline “Tom Corbett: Why should we give him four more years?”
The second commercial, titled “Three Days”, chronicles the rough economic news the Keystone State received in September.
“With Tom Corbett things keep getting worse,” the male narrator says. “September 16th: Budget deficits force Pennsylvania to borrow $1.5 billion just to keep the lights on.”
“Three days later, Pennsylvania’s unemployment rate goes up for the second straight month,” he continues. “Under Tom Corbett, we’ve fallen from 9th to 47th in job creation. And on September 25th, Pennsylvania’s credit is downgraded for the fifth time in two years.”
The narrator finishes with virtually the same tagline from the previous spot.
“Why would we give Tom Corbett four more years?” he asks.
