Democratic Primary Candidates Busy On The Campaign Trail

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

It was a very busy day on the campaign trail as the four democratic candidates for Pennsylvania Governor covered some miles on this last weekend before Tuesday's primary. Fox 29’s Chris O’Connell was there with those candidates on the last minute push.

Obviously, Philadelphia is a must win for all of the candidates. A rally for State Treasurer Rob McCord who has the backing of several powerful unions finished up his day at St. Christopher's hospital.

Chris caught up with Congresswoman Allyson Schwartz she was touring neighborhoods and shaking hands around Chestnut Hill.

Katie McGinty, a former state environmental official from Chester County was campaigning at Penn’s Landing at the Israeli Independence Day celebration.

The front runner in polls, businessman Tom Wolf who has billed himself as the “anti-politician,” and started television ads weeks before his opponents, was also stumping in Philadelphia.

Of course the winner of Tuesday's primary will try to unseat Governor Tom Corbett.

Corbett who is running unopposed already started television ads targeting Tom Wolf even before the primary.

All of the candidates will have another slate of 11th hour campaigning on Monday.
