Pennsylvania Democratic businessman Tom Wolf has unseated the state’s Republican governor, Tom Corbett, NBC projected.


Wolf, 65, poured his personal fortune into the race and hammered the governor over declining education spending. Corbett, also 65 and a blunt former prosecutor, trailed Wolf badly in most pre-election polls.
