Re­pub­lic­an strategist John Brabend­er says his com­mu­nic­a­tions con­sult­ing firm will work on busi­ness­man Paul Mango’s (R) gubernat­ori­al cam­paign “if he de­cides to go for­ward with a run.”

“Mango was in Phil­adelphia last week for meet­ings with” fun­draiser Nan McLaugh­lin and Brabend­er. “McLaugh­lin is the founder MJM Strategies, firm that spe­cial­izes in polit­ic­al fun­drais­ing, and Brabend­er is the own­er-part­ner of Brabend­er­Cox, a com­mu­nic­a­tions con­sult­ing firm. Both worked with” former Gov. Tom Corbett’s (R) failed “re-elec­tion ef­forts in 2014.” (Polit­ic­sPA)

STATE YOUR BUSI­NESS. “Three years in­to the job and fa­cing re-elec­tion soon, Gov. Tom Wolf (D) presen­ted a $32.3 bil­lion spend­ing plan that looks to ap­peal to middle-class voters by downs­iz­ing state gov­ern­ment, rais­ing the hourly min­im­um wage and tar­get­ing busi­ness tax in­creases.” (Al­lentown Morn­ing Call)
