GOP leads in the PA Governors race …
Republican Tom Corbett and Democrat Dan Onorato both won their respective primaries last Tuesday. Now in the first poll since the primaries, Republican Corbett has a 49% to 36% lead in the race to be the next Keystone state governor.
Republican State Attorney General Tom Corbett is near the critical 50% mark in his race against Allegheny County Chief Executive Dan Onorato for governor of Pennsylvania.
A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in Pennsylvania, taken Wednesday night, finds Corbett earning 49% support to Onorato’s 36%. Four percent (4%) prefer another candidate in the race, and 10% remain undecided.
A victory by the GOP would represent a pick up by the Republican party as the office is presently held by Democrat Ed Rendell.
Just one month ago, Corbett posted a 45% to 36% lead over Onorato in a hypothetical match-up. One has to wonder how the PA gubernatorial election will affect the US Senate race between Republican nominee Pat Toomay and Democrat Joe Sestak, or vice-versa. Presently Sestak has a 46% to 42% lead.
