Let’s say that Schwartz doesn’t win the RAT nomination (I think that she will, but whatever). In that case, unless a viable Republican candidate beats Corbett in the GOP primary, the choice in November will be between Corbett and someone just as liberal on economic issues as Schwartz. And do you think that the GOP state legislature will be able to pass any tax cuts over the Democrat governor’s veto?

Either take out Corbett in the primary with a candidate who can win the general (he certainly can be more conservative than Corbett, but he can’t be some nobody with no record), or else support Corbett in the general; otherwise, a liberal Democrat will be governor.

Corbett is vulnerable in the primary to an unknown because he is vulnerable in the general.

Only 42 percent were ready to support him in the GOP primary with 23 percent for Guzzardi, who very few even know about.

Maybe an outsider like Guzzardi could take on a career politician like Schwartz, especially in our economic doldrums that could worsen as the year goes on.

In another post in this thread I noted how many Penn State fans have a big beef with Corbett that helped elect Kathleen Kane two years ago.

I think that beef is a big reason Corbett’s re-elect numbers are low in the polls, rendering him virtually unelectable anyway.
