PA Budget Season Ends with Corbett at Crossroads



Republican Governor Tom Corbett is starting to wade into a re-election campaign after the collapse of three major agenda items in the state Legislature.
 
His campaign aides say they plan to be aggressive in telling his story and pointing out contrasts with the Democrats seeking their party's nomination to oppose him in November 2014. Observers say Corbett will be able to raise campaign money and he'll have the status of being the incumbent. But polls show weak public support for the first-term Republican.
 
Corbett has a record of opposing new taxes and handling dwindling revenues from the economic downturn. But opponents say he's shown weak leadership, citing the failure of his liquor privatization, transportation infrastructure and public pension overhaul initiatives. Corbett's education and health care policies are also obvious targets
