Gov. Tom Corbett on Wednesday vowed to call a special session on pension reform if voters hand him a second term in November, warning that retirement costs will consume an ever-greater portion if state spending if they remain unaddressed. Speaking to The Inquirer's editorial board, the Republican governor took a pop at Democratic challenger Tom Wolf, warning that if he is not "re-elected for four more years, there will be nothing done about this, because Mr. [Tom] Wolf says there is not a pension problem." The conversation came on the eve of a new Quinnipiac University poll showing Wolf leading Corbett by a 24-point margin. It was the latest escalation of tensions between the two Toms. Corbett took to the airwaves this week to defend his record on education spending.
