Tom Corbett Aims to Raise $30 Million for Election

Tells Politico: “Every race I’ve run, I won.”

Gov. Tom Corbett plans to raise $30 million for his re-election campaign, he told Politico this weekend. That would beat his 2010 fund-raising total of $25.5 million, but still fall short of Ed Rendell’s $42 million blockbuster back in 2002.

His polls may be exceedingly weak, but Corbett told Politico he has plenty of reasons to expect to win re-election.

“Keep in mind: every race I’ve run I wasn’t supposed to win,” he said. “Every race I’ve run, I won.” So far, at least, he’s half right.
