Governor Tom Wolf launches his statewide bus tour in downtown Erie. Jackie Roberts joined us live from Lavery Brewing where the bus will be making its first stop.
Wolf and Senator Bob Casey are visiting communities across the Commonwealth as part of what they’re calling the ‘PA Votes Blue’ bus tour.
The bus is expected to take off at 7pm. Leaders from the democratic party, including Congressional Candidate Ron DiNicola and State Representative Candidate Bob Merski are among the crowd.
Coordinators say the decision to start the tour in Erie shows state leaders understand this region’s critical role in Pennsylvania politics.
Jim Wertz, Erie County Democratic Party Chairman, tells us, “It’s a recognition of the fact of how important Erie, Pennsylvania is to politics in the Commonwealth and it’s also a recognition of how important the craft beer industry is to agriculture and commerce here in the state as well.”
