PA GOP Chairman Statement on Governor Wolf’s Lack of Leadership


HARRISBURG — Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Val DiGiorgio issued the following statement on Governor Wolf’s lack of leadership:

“Does Tom Wolf even want be governor? After being completely AWOL — aside from campaigning at a Planned Parenthood facility —  for an entire summer and into the fall, Governor Wolf desperately tried to push the blame onto House Republicans for his astonishing lack of leadership. He was even absent from the Capitol on many days while the House and Senate were in session.

“Governor Wolf is the CEO of Pennsylvania — our credit downgrades and having to borrow a billion dollars are his failures. What Governor Wolf should have done months ago was act like a Governor and take out a red pen and line-item veto parts of the budget to bring it into balance; unfortunately for Pennsylvania taxpayers, he was not ready to make some tough choices.”
