WOLF’S DEN. Gov. Tom Wolf (D) “is working to make the case for his re-election. The first-term Democrat gave a keynote speech Monday morning at a breakfast event attended by lawmakers and business leaders from around the region. And he took the opportunity to set himself apart from the corruption fears that have lately plagued Washington.
“When Wolf ran for governor, one of the most important figures in his campaign wasn’t a person. It was his 2006 Jeep Wrangler. Three years later, the vehicle’s still very much in the picture. It remains an important symbol for the governor, as does the fact that he donates his salary and doesn’t live in the governor’s mansion. … In Wolf’s pitch to voters, these deliberate moves are meant to signify that he’s not a lifelong politician. Pennsylvanians, he argues, can trust him.” (WITF)
