HARRISBURG, Pa. - A Republican who opposed Tom Corbett when he was elected attorney general in 2004 says he may take on now-Gov. Corbett in the 2014 GOP primary.
Bruce Castor, a former Montgomery County district attorney and now a county commissioner, confirmed Wednesday he's seriously considering challenging Corbett for the Republican nomination. The story was first reported by the online site PoliticsPA.com.
The 51-year-old Castor is the first Republican to publicly express interest in challenging Corbett and he expects to make up his mind by spring. He says he believes the governor's weak leadership in his first two years in office makes him vulnerable.
Castor lost the 2004 GOP nomination for state attorney general to Corbett by more than 5 percentage points.
