Governor Corbett Campaigns in Erie

Posted: Updated:

Governor Tom Corbett made a campaign stop in Erie today, the final stop in his statewide tour announcing he is running for re-election. Corbett spoke to supporters this morning at Erie's Bayfront Sheraton Hotel.

 He never referred to his low standing in opinion polls. Instead, concentrating on what he said was his determination to keep his promises to cut spending, hold the line on taxes, and help create jobs. He said he had to cope with a $4.2 billion deficit when he took office.

 He said, "So what did we do? We had to downsize. We had to reduce spending. We had to say, you are not going to get everything you got before and that is exactly what we did."

 At least seven democrats are now considering running against Corbett next year.
