MEDIA, Pa. - Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett is attacking two of his weakest polling points: his job approval by women voters and his efforts on education.
Corbett attended the kickoff Thursday of a women's committee that will help lead efforts to attract women supporters to the Republican's re-election campaign.
Corbett attended the function in Media, Delaware Co., with his wife, Susan, who told a crowd of about 60 people gathered in a restaurant that her husband has a strong record on funding education.
The appearance came a few days after the campaign released a TV ad in which Susan Corbett does the talking and stresses her husband's commitment to education.
Her contention that Corbett increased the education department's budget doesn't count federal recession aid for public schools and universities that expired three years ago. Counting that aid, the department's budget remains smaller.
A Democratic candidate's run for the Pennsylvania Legislature is down the drain, partly because he used too little water at the house he claimed as his residence.Read More »
