Political pundits Terry Madonna and Michael Young are already handicapping the field for the 2014 Pennsylvania gubernatorial election.
Gov. Tom Corbett is expected to seek re-election. But Democrats smell blood in the water based on his job polling numbers, and the Nov. 6 Democratic victories in the state highlighted by President Barack Obama’s second-term win and U.S. Sen Bob Casey’s re-election.
Their column can be found here.
Madonna and Young say it’s even possible that Corbett could face a challenge in the GOP primary.
They say the field of potential Democratic candidates includes Ed Rendell (again, though he says no), state Treasurer Rob McCord, Attorney General-elect Kathleen Kane, former Congressman Joe Sestak, Casey, and Josh Shapiro, current chairman of the Montgomery County commissioners.
Sounds like 2014 could be interesting.
