The Patriot-News reports that Al Gore is endorsing Katie McGinty to be the Democrat who challenges Gov. Tom Corbett in the fall. McGinty served on Gore’s staff when he was a Tennessee senator, and later was an advisor to his 2000 presidential campaign.
“I strongly endorse Katie McGinty for governor,” said Gore. “She shares my belief that we can build a better country and improve the lives of hard-working families. Katie has always viewed environmental challenges as economic opportunities. She knows how to create jobs—while protecting the environment. And she has the intellect, leadership skills, and optimistic, can-do attitude to build a better and more prosperous Pennsylvania.”
