HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Gov. Tom Corbett is launching his first radio ad campaign this year to support his re-election bid, and although the Republican isn’t anticipating a stiff primary challenge, he’s battling lackluster polling numbers.

Corbett’s 60-second ad was to begin running in every media market Tuesday.

In it, he touts his fiscal policies and his promise to change Harrisburg, even if they didn’t make him popular. Seven Democrats say they plan to seek the party’s nomination to challenge Corbett in the Nov. 4 general election.

The primary election is May 20.

For his re-election campaign, Corbett reported raising $6.8 million last year, with his biggest contributions from Philadelphia cable TV mogul and philanthropist H.F. “Gerry” Lenfest and the Washington, D.C.-based Republican Governors Association.
