No Surprise: Tom Wolf Is Biggest Spender in Gov’s Race

Campaign finance forms show he's outspending everybody else — put together.

PennLive reports: “York County businessman Tom Wolf, who has largely self-funded his campaign in the Democratic gubernatorial primary, has spent more money than all of his competitors together. His spending – which includes $4.4 million in advertising – has propelled Wolf to the front of the race, making him, for the moment, the candidate to beat. Wolf’s rivals – U.S. Rep. Allyson Schwartz ($1 million spent); state Treasurer Rob McCord ($2.9m spent); and Katie McGinity ($1.2m spent), have moved to counter Wolf’s early lead. All three have begun airing television ads of their own, which could swing voters away from Wolf.”
