Tom Corbett is airing two spots this week that are likely to help him shore up his lead in the polls against Democrat challenger Dan Onorato. The first focuses on jobs and education as a way to plug the “brain drain” leak that’s causing young graduates to leave the commonwealth.
The second ad tries to tie Gov. Ed Rendell to Dan Onorato. Rendell, deeply unpopular among Pennsylvanians, would be an albatross at this point for Onorato, who has already cited the governor as his “mentor.”
