Gov. Jack Markell, chair of the Democratic Governors Association, and Nathan Daschle, the DGA’s executive director, issued the following statements tonight regarding the Pennsylvania gubernatorial race:
"The first time Pennsylvania voters got to see Dan Onorato in a statewide election, they overwhelmingly liked what they saw," Gov. Markell said. "In a rough economy, he's been able to hold the line on property tax increases and create thousands of good jobs for the residents of his county. Dan is a political outsider whose vision for the future is one of growth and transformation."
Nathan Daschle added that Corbett's free ride to the general election leaves him vulnerable.
"Tom Corbett hasn't been tested and is overvalued as a candidate," Daschle said. "He didn't face serious primary opposition and no one has yet exposed his many flaws. Pennsylvania voters will come to know how Corbett personifies politics as usual, uses his office for political ploys and sides with corporations and special interests over working families. Pennsylvanians need a governor with an optimistic vision for the future - not one who would rather cater to special interests than average families."
