Tough-talking GOP rival to governor: I’ll stomp on your face
HARRISBURG >> Pennsylvania’s Republican candidate for governor is telling Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf to put on a catcher’s mask because “I’m going to stomp all over your face with golf spikes.”
Scott Wagner made the comments in a nearly 3-minute video posted Friday on Facebook.
His campaign says the remarks are of course metaphorical, but are meant to convey how Wagner will approach the campaign’s final stretch before the Nov. 6 election.
Wolf’s campaign says they show Wagner is “unhinged and unfit for office.”
Wagner, a former state senator who owns a waste-hauling company, has used other violent imagery in the past to describe how he’d get things done in the Capitol.
He once talked about wearing gloves to the statehouse because things would get bloody, and another time spoke of bringing a baseball bat.
