Two Weeks

Every election is different and strange in its own way.  This year's Pennsylvania Primary might take the cake.

Tom Wolf came out of nowhere.  He spent early and he spent big.  Polls have him sailing toward the Democratic gubernatorial nomination in two weeks.

Incumbent Republican Tom Corbett has only token opposition.

Corbett is already running commercials, comparing his record to Wolf's.

Hey, we haven't had the primary yet!

Most incumbent governors have breezed in to a second term here in Pennsylvania.  Another four years of Tom Corbett is far from a done deal.  He has a lot of ground to make up, and the stakes are high.

I know why he's doing it, but can Corbett's actions be taken as a sign he thinks the primary is meaningless?

Regardless of how you feel, make sure you hit the polls May 20.  Every election is important.
