DUNCANSVILLE, BLAIR COUNTY - “I'm going to be running on my record. I told you what I was going to do and we did it,” Governor Tom Corbett says.
Governor Corbett spent Monday promoting small businesses in Blair County.
Saying those businesses are one of the main reasons unemployment numbers in the state continue to decline.
“We made a promise that we were going to continue to work to lower taxes and grow the economy and what you're seeing as a result of that is people investing in PA coming to Pennsylvania from outside the state,” Governor Corbett says.
One of the biggest debates on the campaign trail has been over education funding. Democrats say one billion dollars in cuts put schools in harms way.
Corbett says those initial cuts were due to over-spending by the previous administration...
“I had a choice. I could either raise taxes or control our spending and ask everyone to control their spending,” Gov. Corbett says.
Since then Corbett says he's continued to provide more funds across the board.
Overall poll numbers so far aren't in Corbett's favor.
55 percent of people in the latest Quinnipiac poll say they don't think the governor deserves re-election.
Those polls also indicate that he trails all four democratic candidates head to head., but the Governor says these aren't the numbers he's concerned with.
“There's one poll. It's in November and when we get to November I'm confident we're going to win,” Gov. Corbett says.
