PITTSBURGH - After months of saying he would run for a second term and fundraising for the effort, Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett has launched a multi-day, cross-state event tour to raise his profile with a year to go until election day.
Corbett, a Republican, appeared Wednesday morning at the Heinz History Center in Pittsburgh, his home base.
After that, he's flying to Pittston in northeastern Pennsylvania for an afternoon rally at a construction company that specializes in pipelines.
Corbett will appear Thursday morning at an American Legion Post in northeast Philadelphia and at a Veterans of Foreign Wars post in Montgomery County that afternoon.
In the following days, he's scheduled to appear at campaign events in West Chester, Allentown, Doylestown, Lancaster, York, Hershey and Erie.
A judge's ruling is increasing the possible penalty that three former Penn State administrators could face if convicted of crimes for how they responded to the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal.Read More »
