The voters have spoken, and it appears that Pennsylvania Attorney General Tom Corbett will be the next governor of Pennsylvania.
Corbett (R) received 2,135,187 votes, compared to opponent Dan Onorato (D), who received 1,783,114 votes.
Corbett will take over for current Gov. Edward G. Rendell, who has served two terms.
According to Corbett’s Web site:
In 2008, Attorney General Tom Corbett was re-elected with more than three million votes, which is more votes than any Republican candidate in the history of Pennsylvania. On September 14, 2009, Tom Corbett announced his campaign for Governor and has received the endorsements of former Governors Richard Thornburgh, Tom Ridge and Mark Schweiker because of his proven strength at the ballot box, his vision for Pennsylvania and his experience and accomplishments as a prosecutor, a soldier, business executive and small business owner.
Corbett will be joined by running mate Jim Cawley.
