Corbett on the hot seat: Join us for a live interview

Heron's Nest - Thu, 2014-10-16 07:41
Gov. Tom Corbett continues to face a decidedly uphill fight in his bid to win re-election.

Most polls have Democratic challenger Tom Wolf up, although the margin has been moving at least a little bit in the governor's favor.

A recent poll has Corbett within single digits of Wolf with three weeks left in the campaign.

Today we'll be putting Corbett on the hot seat - and you can take part. The governor, seeking to avoid being the first incumbent to fail to win a second term in the governor's mansion, will sit down for a live interview with members of the Digital First Media regional editorial board.

I'll be on the call.

You can watch a live-stream of the broadcast here.And there will be a live Scribble for you to take part in a live chat.

I've received several good questions for the governor from readers. If you have something you'd like him to answer, email me your question at editor@delcotimes.com.

We'll be live with Gov. Corbett at 8:30 a.m.

Join us!
