Swanny Clears a Path
The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review is reporting that PA Lt. Gov. Bill Scranton is stepping aside in his bid for the GOP nomination for Governor in order to present a united party behind presumed nominee and Pro Football Hall of Famer Lynn Swann.
Everything I have seen and heard says that Swann will give Gov. Ed Rendell a run for his money, and Swann is certainly not known for getting into something he doesn't intend to win. However, it will be interesting to see how the rigors of a campaign affect a political novice like Swann.
It certainly won't hurt that the glory years of the Pittsburgh Steelers, of which Swann was a part, were recalled by this year's Super Bowl Champs. Well, that is unless those bitter Philiadelphia Eagles fans all vote for Rendell out of spite.
