HARRISBURG — In response to Tom Wolf’s recent comments about “looking for weapons” at Penn State’s Ag Progress Days, the Republican Party of Pennsylvania has released a web ad highlighting the similarities between his comments and those of President Barack Obama in 2008.

“Tom Wolf’s comments exposed an unsettling truth: he shares Barack Obama’s passive disdain for Pennsylvania’s rural communities,” Gleason said. “It’s troubling to learn that Tom Wolf thinks it’s funny to go ‘looking for weapons’ on Pennsylvania citizens who just trying to enjoy their local summer event. Tom Wolf doesn’t view Pennsylvania’s gun owners as proud citizens of our communities; he views them as the easy targets of an offensive remark.”

“Does Tom Wolf believe that Pennsylvanians ‘cling to their guns and religion’ like President Obama?

“Tom Wolf’s distasteful remarks should serve as a cause of concern for all Pennsylvanians who cherish 2nd Amendment Rights and Pennsylvania traditions.”

During a speech during Tom Wolf’s Ag Progress Days at Penn State, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Tom Wolf quipped, “By the way, I wasn’t going around and saying hi to people earlier, before Stephen started. If you thought I was trying to be nice, I wasn’t. I was looking for weapons.”
