Casey Won't Rule Out Gubernatorial Run

December 10, 2012

Lots of buzz coming out of Pennsylvania Society weekend in New York City -- here are the tidbits on the 2014 gubernatorial race, in which numerous Democrats are mulling taking on Republican Gov. Tom Corbett.

Democratic Rep. Allyson Schwartz got some attention with her hire of Aubrey Montgomery, the state party's finance director. And this weekend the congresswoman confirmed she's considering the race, Politics PA reports.

Other Democrats now considering running, per Politics PA: Former Rep. Kathy Dahlkemper and state Sen. Mike Stack. And Sen. Bob Casey, fresh off his reelection win, wouldn't rule it out. A Casey bid would likely clear the Democratic field.

Meanwhile, Philadelphia Daily News' John Baer reports that in an informal poll, Democratic fundraiser Ken Jarin was giving people 10 seconds to name the party's likely gubernatorial nominee -- and that the name to pop up most frequently in response is Treasurer Rob McCord.

Last week Montgomery County Commissioner Bruce Castor said he was considering a primary challenge to Corbett. Former Department of Environmental Protection secretary John Hanger is the only announced Democrat in the race so far.

Corbett looks potentially vulnerable in the general election, with a recent poll showing tepid support for him.
