In Pennsylvania, the Corbett-Cawley campaign today announced the release of their latest television commercial, “Mr. Big.” The ad calls out Secretary Tom Wolf on his continued attempt to sell the “billion dollar lie” regarding education funding. The ad is now running statewide on television.
“Secretary Tom Wolf’s entire campaign is a house of cards built on tax increases, recycled big government agenda and bold-faced lies,” stated Communications Director Chris Pack. “The undisputable truth is that Wolf is lying about Governor Corbett’s record and newspapers across Pennsylvania agree. Tom Wolf is a liar and that should disqualify him from serving as Governor.”
The commercial script and sources are listed below.
