Tom Wolf to Visit Penn State on Wednesday

Tom Wolf, the frontrunner in the Pennsylvania gubernatorial race, will visit Penn State for the first time this Wednesday. Wolf will appear at the Berkey Creamery at 10 a.m. to meet with students and State College-area residents.

Wolf, the Democratic candidate for the position, is up 23 points in the latest bipartisan poll over incumbent Tom Corbett. Wolf hasn’t said much related to the university during his campaign. His most notable statement came last week during an appearance on MSNBC’s “Hardball with Chris Matthews.” Matthews painted a broad stroke in his question for Wolf on the Sandusky Scandal: “Do you think people could have made that thing better than it turned out?”

“Yeah, all of us in Pennsylvania feel badly about what happened to Penn State and I think it was handled badly,” Wolf said. “I think most Pennsylvanians think it was handled badly and it’s a black mark on Pennsylvania. We can do a lot better on a lot of things.”

Regardless of his vague response, Wolf’s lead among Pennsylvanian voters and Penn Staters in particular most likely didn’t take a hit. With Corbett seen as an antagonist by many with Penn State ties, Wolf’s comments this close to the election are background noise in an election dominated by other issues. Election Day is November 4.
