Tom Wolf spent the day after the primary election meeting and greeting enthusiastic voters.

The York County businessman became the democratic nominee for Pennsylvania governor Tuesday after earning nearly 58 percent of the vote, winning all 67 counties.

Wednesday afternoon, he stopped by the Manchester Cafe — a regular lunch spot for the local millionaire — to talk with customers.

“He has a lot offer the state,” former Mount Wolf mayor Jim Kinder said. “Anyone who has been up to Harrisburg knows it’s a mess up there.”

Wolf said he believes the decisive primary outcome proves Pennsylvanians are ready for new leadership from a person new to politics.

“I believe in the democratic process,” he said. “I think Pennsylvania needs to be made better, and so instead of just talking about it, I stepped up.”

Wolf said he plans to focus on four key issues during the race against Governor Tom Corbett. Those include education, transportation, gas drilling and “leveling the playing field” in terms of jobs.

Though he borrowed $4.5 million for television ads during the primary race, Wolf told abc27 he does not foresee having to personally fund his campaign moving forward.
