With the last debate in the primary cycle in the rear view mirror, ‘who’s your pick?’ Money buys elections and Tom Wolf is sitting at the top of the heap heading into the Democratic primary.
Don’t believe the ads! While the low information voter might rely on them, we certainly should know that they are chock full of B.S. The attacks on Wolf, the most misleading, with the emphasis on Wolf “THE TAX COLLECTOR”, who allegedly raised taxes by 17% in PA. Wolf who worked under Governor Rendell was in fact the tax man, though not responsible for the proposed 1% tax hike, that was Rendell. But the emphasis in the ad, heck who likes the man with the label “tax-collector?” The other label appropriately applied to Wolf, “millionaire”.The way it is used in the ads, the same way used by democrats to frame the Republican Party. Millionaire equals EVIL, yes?
Whether Wolf is your pick or not, the ads against him are strong, pointed and with little accuracy. Why did we pick out Wolf and the ads against him? Isn’t that where all the focus is? Afterall, he is rich, has bought tons of ad time and he is way ahead. Putting him on the radar of Republicans for general election time. Low information voters, that is who put him in the lead in the polls, only appropriate they believe the nonsense against Wolf now.
