Continuing Coverage Entry: The Race for Governor

Written by Tim Lambert, witf Multimedia News Director | Feb 4, 2015 11:24 AM

The 2014 Pennsylvania gubernatorial election was historic, breaking trends in gubernatorial politics going back decades as Democratic challenger Tom Wolf bested incumbent Republican Governor Tom Corbett. Over the course of the year, WITF's team of reporters followed the candidates from the four-person fight for the Democratic nomination in the spring to the general election between Corbett and Wolf. We worked to highlight not only the key issues candidates were talking about, but also the ones they *weren't* discussing  in the run-up to both primary and general elections.

*Several stories in this entry have been edited.*
