Gov. Wolf responds to criticism over too few debates


We are just six weeks away from the general election on Tuesday, November 6, and we’re still waiting on a debate between Pennsylvania’s candidates for Governor. 

Pennsylvanians will only get one, and it comes one week from Monday. 

Traditionally, gubernatorial candidates have done at least three debates. 

Republican candidate Scott Wagner wants more, and has blasted Wolf, asking what is he afraid of?

Wolf says voters should consider his overall campaign, and not just debates. 

“Weigh all the different things. Not at just one event but, throughout the campaign with ads, with press releases, with press conferences like this,” said Wolf. “With speeches. That’s what I think, in a democracy, people want to see and that’s how they make their decisions.”

Wolf’s campaign has a sizable lead in both fundraising and in the polls. 

More campaign ads should be hitting TV airwaves between now and Election Day, November 6.
