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.
Sunoco Logistics Partners said there's so much interest in its plans to build a natural gas liquids pipeline across southern Pennsylvania that the company will actually build two pipelines.Read More »
