Pa. newspaper: Re-elect Gov. Tom Corbett for concrete way forward

From the Times-Leader in Wilkes-Barre:
We wanted to like Tom Wolf.

With many aspects of the commonwealth struggling under the leadership of Gov. Tom Corbett, we went into our endorsement process – like so many Pennsylvanians – assuming Wolf would come out on top.

But when it came time to pit Corbett’s record against Wolf’s rhetoric, we couldn’t bring ourselves to support the Democratic challenger.

We don’t know where Wolf stands on too many important issues that affect Northeastern Pennsylvania. From capturing methane gas to restoring rail service from New York City to Scranton, Wolf is the candidate who just won’t commit to a position.

Beware of (Tom) Wolf in Sheep's Clothing



Democrat Tom Wolf wants to raise taxes on Pennsylvania families and businesses. But Pennsylvania is already taxed enough. This from David Baldinger of the Pennsylvania Taxpayers Cyber Coalition: Pennsylvania is number 34 overall but 46 in corporate tax and 42 in property tax and everyone wonders why businesses don’t want to locate here.  HB/SB 76 can have a profound effect on at least one of these factors.

2 newspaper endorsements Tom Wolf won't get

Two of Pennsylvania's most liberal newspapers will not be endorsing liberal Democrat Tom Wolf, the current front-runner in the race for Pennsylvania governor.

The new owner of The Philadelphia Inquirer and Philadelphia News has decided his newspapers will not endorse a candidate for governor this year. That means Tom Wolf won't get the automatic endorsement of the left-leaning editorial boards that run the two newspapers.

Instead, owner/publisher Gerry Lenfest announced that his newspapers will present a series of issues the editors believe are critical to the state's future, where the two candidates stand on those issues ... and where the newspaper stands on the issue. Then it's up to voters to decide who to elect governor for on Nov. 4.

You can argue that the editorial board will tailor the "issues" to favor Wolf, but the Democrat was going to get the endorsements anyway over incumbent Republican Gov. Tom Corbett, so at least the newspapers are going through the motions of pretending they're giving voters an objective look at the candidates.

Check out the newspapers' non-endorsement "endorsement" editorial at the link below:

Newspaper: Corbett clear choice for Pa. governor over Wolf's dangerous agenda

From the Williamsport Sun-Gazette:
We endorse a second term for Gov. Corbett. Contrary to the ridiculous claims of Wolf, Corbett has increased the state's funding of education. He wants to continue managing the gas industry that is generating jobs and producing revenue and attack the looming pension crisis with changes to make it solvent in the long-term future. He wants to privatize the liquor store system, bringing in revenue from sale of licenses and increasing consumer choice.

These are practical choices that make long-term sense. The only reason more of them have not been implemented is a politicized wing of the Legislature. We believe Wolf would take this state in a dangerous direction that Pennsylvanians once they see it in action - will be unhappy with.

Pittsburgh Newspaper Endorses Tom Corbett For Pennsylvania Governor

From the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review:
Four years ago, we "heartily" endorsed Republican Tom Corbett for governor of Pennsylvania. The commonwealth, we said then, could not survive the kind of third Ed Rendell term being offered by Democrat Dan Onorato. 

Four years later, and after much deliberation, we again endorse Tom Corbett. It is not a hearty endorsement. But it is a necessary one, given his opponent's Rendellian proclivities. And it comes with conditions for our continued support.

Democrat Tom Wolf pledges to expand Pa. welfare rolls if elected governor

Pennsylvania already spends $11 billion a year on welfare programs, but that's not enough for Democrat Tom Wolf, who wants to be the state's next governor. Wolf says he will eliminate reforms Gov. Tom Corbett has put into place to end welfare fraud so the state can add more residents to its welfare rolls.

Philly Inquirer Endorses GOP's Costello for PA 6th Congressional Dist.

Here's a mild surprise. The Philadelphia Inquirer, Pennsylvania's largest newspaper but with a left-leaning editorial board, has endorsed Republican Ryan Costello for Pennsylvania's 6th Congressional District.

There's no doubt that Costello is far more qualified than his Democratic challenger to represent the 6th District in Congress, but the Inquirer endorses Democrats 99 percent of the time, so any time the paper backs a Republican, it's a "Stop The Presses" moment.

Read the full endorsement editorial here.
