“All across America, people did what you did. You voted to bring things back to where they were. You voted for better lives. You voted to hold on to our democracy.”

Continuing along Democratic themes, Wolf said people voted for better schools, for better access and better quality health care, and voted for a ‘fairer’ Pennsylvania.

He also said voters also cast their ballots for a public service that has integrity and that can be trusted to be competent and honest.
