Key findings:

  • 21 percent of the $28.7 million Gov. Tom Corbett raised in the 2010 election came from the Republican Governors Association, a 527 organization that receives significant contributions from the oil and gas industry.
  • Corbett collected $1.3 million directly from oil and gas industry political action committees and employees.
  • After his election, Corbett created the Marcellus Shale Advisory Commission to plan a development strategy for Pennsylvania's natural gas deposits. The commission includes some of his top donors or their employees and executives of natural gas companies doing work in the state.
