Tom Wolf, the sixth-generation owner of a Pennsylvania supplier of kitchen cabinets and specialty building products, became a step closer to the governor’s mansion on Tuesday by winning the Democratic primary for governor.

According to Politico, Wolf, the former CEO and chairman of The Wolf Organization in York, Pa., prevailed over three fellow Democrats to capture the party’s nod for a general election race to unseat Republican Gov. Tom Corbett.

“With 99 percent of precincts reporting, Wolf was at 58 percent of the vote, followed by Rep. Allyson Schwartz in a distant second at 18 percent. State Treasurer Rob McCord was at 17 percent, and former state Environmental Protection Secretary Katie McGinty was at 8 percent,” Politico reports.

“Wolf, who billed himself as an outsider and a ‘different kind of governor,’ served as revenue secretary under Gov. Ed Rendell and now runs his family’s cabinet-making company. He poured $10 million of his own money into the primary, allowing him to blanket the airwaves with ads beginning in late January and continuing through Tuesday’s primary,” the website reported.

Wolf stepped down as CEO of his company to run for office. Craig Danielson is now CEO.
