As the November 4 election nears, Republican incumbent Tom Corbett and Democratic candidate Tom Wolf are gaining endorsements from various groups across the state.

The Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry, Boilermakers Local 154 and the Laborers’ District Council of Western PA have endorsed Governor Corbett.

The Pennsylvania Family Council has released its comprehensive candidate research at PaFamilyVoter.com. That research includes a list of endorsements, links to candidate websites and more.
The Pennsylvania Catholic Conference invited both candidates for Pennsylvania governor to share their views. Incumbent Governor Tom Corbett (Republican) sat down for an in-person interview and completed a written questionnaire. Democratic candidate Tom Wolf declined the PCC’s interview invitation and did not respond to the candidate questionnaire. Information about his views was therefore compiled from his campaign website and public statements. See these resources here.
The Pennsylvania Catholic Conference does not endorse candidates for public office.
Much more information is available on their candidate websites:
