Tom Corbett Mum on Key Reforms

According to a post on Politics PA by Jeanette Krebs, Tom Corbett's promised reform plan says nothing about:
Banning all public officials from accepting gifts and gratuities, which 66% of PA voters favor.

A referendum in November for a Constitution convention, supported by 72% of PA voters.

Prohibiting lame-duck legislative sessions, which 82% of PA voters want to do.
My question is, in a time of strong anti-establishment conservatism, why did so many people choose Corbett over Rohrer? For many, Rohrer's plan to eliminate the property tax may have seemed too daring, but his Bill meant to do so probably would not have been ratified by the house anyway.
