Democratic candidate for Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf takes the stage at his primary election night party in Santander Stadium in YorkBy Daniel Kelley PHILADELPHIA (Reuters) – Pennsylvania businessman and former Peace Corps volunteer Tom Wolf claimed victory on Tuesday in a four-way Democratic primary race to challenge Republican Governor Tom Corbett in the November general election. Wolf, a political novice who poured his personal fortune into the race and dominated the airwaves for much of the primary campaign, claimed the nomination with 58 percent of the vote from less than half of the precincts reporting, according to state election returns. “As of today, as of this moment, let’s get started,” Wolf told a crowd at Santander Stadium in his hometown of York, Pennsylvania. His closest rival, U.S. Congresswoman Allyson Schwartz, followed with 18 percent of the vote, while state Treasurer Rob McCord trailed with 16 percent.
