Tom Corbett came to Central Pennsylvania today to stump with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie at the Lycoming County Victory Center in Williamsport. Battle ‘10 was there, and has video of Corbett’s remarks below. Corbett and Christie, both former U.S. attorneys, have forged a friendship that they’re bringing with them on the campaign trail as Christie goes to bat for like-minded political allies.
“Can you imagine what we can accomplish in Pennsylvania and New Jersey,” Corbett recounted musing to Christie, “having two former prosecutors now as governors going after special interests, making sure that money is spent for you, the taxpayer, and not the special interests.”
Corbett leads his opponent, Democrat Dan Onorato, but double digits according to recent polls.
