U.S. Rep. Allyson Y. Schwartz (D., Pa.) said Friday that she would establish a state political committee in the next few weeks, an important procedural precursor to her expected run for governor of Pennsylvania.

The six-term representative from Jenkintown has been traveling around the state trying to line up support.

Should she pull the trigger, Schwartz said, she would not file to run simultaneously for her House seat. "Legally, I'm allowed to, but it wouldn't be right," she said. "I am interested in running for governor. . . . I want to be all in."

Earlier in the week, Schwartz took a step in that direction when she quit as fund-raising chairperson of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

Schwartz is one of several Democrats thinking of taking on Republican Gov. Corbett in 2014 - among them state Treasurer Rob McCord, Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski, State Sen. Mike Stack 3d of Philadelphia, former Revenue Secretary Tom Wolf, and former Philadelphia mayoral candidate Tom Knox. Only the former state environmental secretary, John Hanger, has formally announced a run.

By the way, for those of you on the other side of the state and the north part of the state, yes, she is anti-2A. I don't want anybody outside of Philadelphia and the surrounding area to be confused again like they were with Kathleen Kane.

As a member for the minority party in the House she is powerless other than getting funding for Philly.

Having a social worker in Congress is bad enough. Having one as governor of PA would be even worse. Philly is a black hole for wasted tax dollars, and she will throw even more money at it.
A gun rack in a pick-up is not for holding guns. Its a place for women to hold on to. Smile
