Bernie Sanders has ads running on local radio station. Heard him on Magic 93 this morning. More to come from all the candidates as the primary race nears in Pennsylvania.
• “his willingness to put principle above party”
• “the best credentials and experience to immediately serve Pennsylvania and the nation”
• “he can maneuver beyond partisan politics to help the middle class rebound from years of stagnant wages”
• “Sestak’s refusal to be put into a partisan box”
• “a deep understanding of government and foreign policy that Katie McGinty and John Fetterman cannot match.”
Quite frankly the endorsement comes as a surprise to me given the support being generated for former Wolf and Rendell official Katie McGinty. Sestak who has not been funded as well as McGinty needs the boost. The three Senate candidates were on WVIA TV last night and I was impressed with Jon Fetterman as well as Mr. Sestak. We’ll see how this shakes out on Election Day a few weeks away.
Released Thursday, 35 percent of voters approved of Wolf, 52 percent disapproved and 13 percent had no opinion.
Back in October of ’15, 41 percent of voters gave Wolf a decent rating but 44 percent disagreed and 15 percent had no opinion. After this election year, there will be a municipal, county and city wide elections. That is usually the time an incumbent governor starts making his case for re-election and potential challengers start to make some noise.
Wolf seemed nonplussed by the numbers and continues to govern with initiatives that he could get through in his first two years. Wolf is not the first Governor in his initial term to have lower numbers at this point in his term. But he hopes to avoid the same narrative that plagued his predecessor Tom Corbett.
