Although he was initially viewed as something of a long shot, Tom ran a smart, disciplined primary campaign that focused on his great story as a businessman who shared up to 30% of his profits with his employees. Tom won the primary in a landslide, earning 57.9% of the vote compared to his nearest challenger’s 17.6%. Tom went on to run an equally good general election campaign, and handily defeated incumbent Governor Tom Corbett 54.9%-45.1%.
In 2014, Tom Wolf made history when he became the first person to beat a sitting incumbent Governor in Pennsylvania, on a night that was otherwise difficult for many Democrats across the country.
Mack-Sumner was proud to provide strategic persuasion and GOTV mail in both the primary and general elections.
