The Patriot-News (November 4, 2014) – Former Gov. Tom Ridge has issued the following statement about Tuesday’s election results that resulted in a victory for Democrat Tom Wolf and the defeat of GOP incumbent Tom Corbett:
“My friend, Tom Corbett, arrived to work at the Capitol four years ago when Harrisburg was in historically difficult fiscal times. He kept his word, made some very tough, yet necessary, decisions and did a good job as Governor. Michele and I thank Tom and Susan for their years of public service and wish them nothing but the best.
“Tonight we must respect the voters’ decision to go in a different direction for Pennsylvania. I wish Tom Wolf and his team well as they embark on a new and exciting journey into office. Governor-elect Wolf deserves every opportunity to be successful and I look forward to being helpful in any way that I can.
