DGA Chair Shumlin Congratulates Tom Wolf on Winning the Democratic Nomination for Pennsylvania Governor
Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin, Chair of the Democratic Governors Association, tonight issued the following statement regarding Tom Wolf’s nomination for governor of Pennsylvania:
“On behalf of all of our Democratic governors, I’d like to congratulate Tom Wolf for winning the Democratic nomination for governor of Pennsylvania. Running against an outstanding field of candidates, Tom distinguished himself by focusing relentlessly on how he’ll use his experience in the private and public sectors to bring new, effective leadership to Harrisburg. As governor, he’ll bring people together to create jobs, grow Pennsylvania’s economy, and restore the Corbett education cuts so that economic opportunity is available to all those who have been left behind by the Corbett administration.
“Unfortunately, Governor Corbett has failed the people of Pennsylvania. While proving incapable of delivering on his priorities or creating the jobs he promised, he gutted education funding and pursued a radical social agenda that is out of touch with the people of his state. Pennsylvanians need a fresh start, and that’s what they’ll get when Tom Wolf is elected governor.”
