Corbett, Wolf Make Final Push For Votes In Pennsylvania

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Pennsylvania's gubernatorial candidates are urging their bases to turn out and vote in Tuesday's election

Republican Gov. Tom Corbett visited an evangelical church in Harrisburg, a gun show in Lebanon and a restaurant rally in Lebanon on Saturday on his way to more campaign events in northeastern Pennsylvania. He's shaking hands, signing autographs, posing for snapshots at every stop and urging his supporters to persuade their undecided friends to vote him.

In the final weekend of campaigning, Democratic challenger Tom Wolf, who leads Corbett by a wide margin in independent polling, is spending the day in the Democratic hub of Philadelphia and in Delaware County.

Wolf is urging his supporters not to become complacent and to cast ballots. He says polls are great but votes are what count.

Recently, more newspaper editorial boards began giving endorsements in the race.

Wolf picked up the endorsement from the Times-Tribune of Scranton, the Citizens' Voice of Wilkes-Barre and the Bucks County Courier Times, while Corbett was endorsed by the Williamsport Sun-Gazette and the Tribune-Review of Pittsburgh. The Philadelphia Inquirer published an editorial that did not endorse.

Last week, everywhere from Leechburg to Shelocta got a visit from one of the candidates, and they even ended up in Greensburg at the same time, just a mile or so away from each other. On Sunday, Wolf visited afternoon rallies in McKeesport, Washington and Aliquippa, while Corbett was in Beaver.
