LANCASTER, Pa. (AP) - Democratic gubernatorial candidate Tom Wolf has picked up an endorsement from the Lancaster newspaper.

In an online editorial posted Friday, LNP said incumbent Republican Gov. Tom Corbett has overstated his accomplishment, especially considering that his party also controls both houses of the Legislature.

The newspaper notes that GOP leaders in both chambers have publicly criticized Corbett’s leadership skills and that cuts in public school funding that Corbett supported have driven up local property taxes . It also says he should have worked harder to make the case for reining in the cost of public pensions.

The paper supports Wolf’s call for imposing a severance tax on natural-gas drilling and says it hopes he will govern like the steady, pragmatic businessman he is said to be.
