10 ways to learn more about Tom Wolf, Dem nominee for Pa. governor

The York Daily Record/Sunday News has captured Tom Wolf in scores of photos in his campaign for governor. But this one is my favorite. It shows the Democratic gubernatorial nominee – decided in Tuesday night’s Pennsylvania primary – at an editorial board meeting in March. It says a lot about this York native’s bearing. He explains difficult issues with the patience of a skilled teacher, while showing passion about the issues. You might say that he conveys a determination to do something as governor, not just sit in the top exec chair in Pennsylvania. He and George Leader (who became governor in the 1950s) are the only two York countians to gain a party nomination for Pa. governor. Also of interest: Political roads now leading to York County.

So it’s Tom Wolf v. Tom Corbett for Pa. governor in the fall.

Here are 10 links, videos and photos that round up Wolf’s campaign … .
