Senator-Elect Wofford addressed a National Press Club luncheon to discuss the factors that allowed him to win a Pennsylvania Senate seat in a hotly contested race against former Attorney General Dick Thornburgh in November, 1991. He claimed voter dissatisfaction with the Republican administration’s handling of domestic issues contributed to his election victory. Sen.-Elect Wofford had entered the race as a major underdog against the former attorney general, but had drawn even in the polls by election time on a platform critical of the Bush administration’s handling of the economy. He also discussed the upcoming 1992 elections, and said his victory was a harbinger of election results favorable to the Democrats next November. Sen.-Elect Wofford responded to questions from the audience following his prepared remarks. close
