Latest attack ad hits air in governor's race
HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) -- The race for Pennsylvania governor is heating up, as a second outside group joined the fray with an attack ad on TV.
PA Families First, a coalition of the Democratic Governors Association and labor unions, began airing the ad Tuesday attacking Republican Gov. Tom Corbett.
The ad is running in every Pennsylvania TV market but Erie. It accuses Corbett of cutting education aid, forcing school districts to lay off employees and raise property taxes while he refused to make the "oil and gas industry pay their fair share."
Corbett's campaign says Democrat Tom Wolf and his "cronies are at it again with lies and false information" and that only Corbett will take on public sector unions.
PA Families First reported having nearly $1.6 million to spend, as of June 9.
