    In his email, the 64-year-old Wolf accuses Republican Gov. Tom Corbett of putting special interests over the advancement of the middle class.

    Wolf stressed his own success in running his York building-products company, his background as a Peace Corps volunteer in India and his commitment to programs that provide education for youngsters, health care for the poor and services for the elderly.
