By: - November 4, 2020 9:23 pm

Facing a legal assault from President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign, Gov. Tom Wolf went on offense on Wednesday night.

In a series of Tweets, the Democratic governor said Pennsylvania had made “important progress in counting millions of votes”; that “election officials should be free to do their jobs without intimidation or attacks,” and that attempts by Trump and Republicans to  “subvert the democratic process are disgraceful.”

“I’m going to fight like hell to protect your vote,” Wolf wrote. “We’ll fight every single attempt to disenfranchise voters, and we’ll continue to administer a free and fair election.”
