Two men who could end up running against each other in the race for governor are teaming up Monday to make a major announcement.

Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett and Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski plan a news conference at 4 p.m.

They are expected to announce plans for a new hotel near the site of the hockey arena at 7th and Hamilton streets.

Pawlowski recently announced he will seek the Democratic nomination to run for governor next year.
