HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Pennsylvania's new Democratic nominee for governor says he is the "luckiest person on the face of the Earth right now."

Millionaire businessman Tom Wolf told supporters in York in a victory speech Tuesday night that he has a big job to do spreading the Democratic message to all Pennsylvanians ahead of the Nov. 4 general election.

He says Republican Gov. Tom Corbett has a record of hollowing out the state's schools, and playing fast and loose with jobs and Pennsylvania's natural resources.

He says it's time again to invest in education and says "how about that for a change."

Wolf spoke at Santander Field, the stadium for the York Revolution minor league baseball team.
