Optimistic tone takes the Capitol as Wolf inaugurated for second term

Optimistic tone takes the Capitol as Wolf inaugurated for second term

With a warm, bipartisan tone referencing Pennsylvania’s long history at the center of America’s evolution and painting a picture of a Commonwealth on the comeback, Democratic Governor Tom Wolf was sworn in for his second term, setting the table for a second term surrounded with question marks.

After running and winning his first term as a political outsider, Wolf asked for a slew of tax increases that were rebuffed by ranking Republicans, leading to drawn out budget battles.

However, the second half of the term was marked by bipartisan bills, including pension restructuring, a loosening of liquor sales and the state’s clean slate law.

“As [Senate Majority Leader Jake] Corman said, we’re not like Washington. We can work together here in Harrisburg,” Wolf said during his inaugural address. “We can get things done.”

For 30 minutes, the two, who differ in political background and wardrobe, only shared a willingness to defend their running mates in a debate moderated by WPXI’s Katherine Amenta.
