Grossman, who lost the Democratic nomination to Kathy Dahlkemper in the May 21 primary, said today that he is not mounting a write-in campaign.

“A couple of people approached me and I told them I wasn’t interested,” he said.

He said they were people who supported his candidacy.

Forget about Grossman trying to switch parties and run as an Independent or third-party candidate.

Pennsylvania has what’s called a “sore loser” law that prevents a loser in the primary from switching parties and running in the general election.

By the way, Independents and third-party candidates have until Aug. 1 to file their nomination petitions.

Dahlkemper, the former congresswoman, will face Republican businessman Don Tucci in the election.
