Schwartz Eyes Run for Pennsylvania Governor





Rep. Allyson Schwartz (D-PA) is seriously considering seeking the Democratic nomination for governor in Pennsylvania as her party tries to unseat incumbent Gov. Tom Corbett (R) in the 2014 election, the [link]Philadelphia Inquirer,http://www.philly.com/philly/news/polit ... ernor.html[/link] reports.





"Democrats are seeing Corbett as vulnerable in light of his low approval ratings in recent statewide polls. Though state Treasurer Rob McCord and of other Democrats have dropped hints about entering the race, the only one to toss his hat in the ring to date is John Hanger, the former state environmental secretary."

Gov Corbett should consider pulling a Matt Blunt.Then-Missouri Gov Matt Blunt (Sen Roy Blunt's son) announced in 2008 there was no need for Blunt to run for re-election as Missouri's governor. The reason?In the stunning announcement, Blunt said he had decided not to seek a second term because he had accomplished virtually everything he set out to do when he ran for governor four years ago.[/break1]foxnews.com/story/2008/01/23/missouri-gov-matt-blunt-abruptly-decides-not-to-seek-2nd-term/]http://www.foxnews.com/story/2008/01/23 ... -2nd-term/Just declare victory then run away.At least he didn't use the "spend more time with my family" as his main reason for jumping ship, I'll give him credit for creativity.[/break1]com/2008/01/23/mo-gov-matt-blunt-wont-seek-re-election-hes-accomplished-his-goals]http://crooksandliars.com/2008/01/23/mo ... -his-goalsHmmm. I wonder what became of the millions of dollars stashed away for Blunt's re-election? :-k

I have no idea who I'm going to vote for. I like Schwartz and Wolf. I personally know Katie McGinty and like her as well. The only one I don't like is McCord, he seems like the typical pol. But anyone of them would be an improvement over Core-butt.

It could be either Tom Wolf or Rob McCord. Both of them are nerdy looking. But if it was Wolf, she'd probably call him "that cabinet-making guy" as my daddy does. Wolf owns a big cabinet-making company in York County.I'm leaning towards either Katie (McGinty) or Allyson (Schwartz).

Wolf wins Dems' nomination for Pa. governor





Tom Wolf, the small-town wealthy businessman who sold himself as an outsider, cruised to the Democratic nomination for Pennsylvania governor Tuesday, dispatching three rivals after a dominant television advertising campaign.





Wolf, 65, ran well ahead of five-term U.S. Rep. Allyson Schwartz and state Treasurer Rob McCord, according to complete but unofficial returns. Katie McGinty, former state environmental secretary, trailed.





The winner will take on Gov. Corbett, a Republican, who was unopposed in his party's primary but has been yoked to low approval ratings and is listed by political analysts as the most vulnerable incumbent governor in the nation.





The victory testified to the enduring power of money. Wolf, owner of his family building-supplies company in York and a former revenue secretary in Democrat Ed Rendell's administration, pumped $10 million of his own cash into the race.

Just hoping Corbett has angered enough voters they come to the polls mad and help down ballot Democratic candidates. {SMILIES_PATH}/pray.gif

If Wolf could actually win by 15-20 then the Democrats would definitely have a strong shot at the legislature, especially the State Senate.

I'm exhausted with our stinking Rethug lege and senate. The only good thing about them is that they've spent too much time fighting amongst themselves and with Core-butt to truly screw things up.

The only good thing about them is that they've spent too much time fighting amongst themselves and with Core-butt to truly screw things up.The GOP drew some ridiculous gerrymanders but their overall majorities, 111-92 in the House and 27-23 in the Senate, are not impossible to overcome. This is exactly what the Democrats really need to crack them: an unpopular GOP incumbent at the top of the ballot that will depress Republican turnout. If Wolf can win by a decent margin and compete in some areas that Democrats usually don't contest, we could be in for some surprises.

Tell me about the gerrymanders. There's one district that starts in Delaware County and goes through parts of Chester, Lancaster and Berks Counties. It's like a 120 mile fish hook.

Only two additional poll results added to the list since the previous time I posted the Real Clear Politics summary (neither is Public Policy Polling nor Rasmussen Reports). I'll be surprised if this race garners much attraction anywhere 200 or more miles outside the Pennsylvania border.
