Governor Wolf and Scott Wagner’s Hometown Newspaper Endorses Governor Wolf for Re-election

Pennsylvania – Today, Governor Wolf and Scott Wagner’s hometown newspaper, The York Daily Record, endorsed Governor Wolf for re-election, touting the progress Pennsylvania has made under Governor Wolf’s leadership and emphasizing Scott Wagner’s unhinged temperament and lack of accomplishments. Read more from the endorsement below:

The state’s finances are in much better shape. [Governor Wolf] can point to improvements in government efficiency. His administration is super ethical compared to previous regimes (gift bans, etc.). The state’s absurd liquor system has been reformed (though it really should be privatized). We now have medical marijuana.

Yes, things have improved in Pennsylvania – and they’ve happened under Mr. Wolf’s watch.

There is not a piece of major legislation [Wagner] can take credit for as a prime sponsor that made its way into law.

Mostly, he’s just been a windbag and a bully.

This style has worked surprisingly well for Donald Trump in gaining election. That’s not what we want to see in a governor, though.

Shaking things up is one thing, but doing a Facebook live video in which he threatened the governor with a golf-spike stomping? That’s beyond the pale. And it’s just the tip of the intemperate iceberg for Mr. Wagner – who has made a political career of saying and doing ill-advised things.

He gets at best a C- as a candidate. This cut-rate Trump is just not governor material.

Gov. Wolf still has room for improvement, but he’s done a good job in a very difficult political climate.

He should be re-elected.
