March 13, 2014 – Petitions are in and the field is narrowed for the Pennsylvania Governor’s race.

Incumbent Governor Tom Corbett is being challenged by five democrats and one republican.

On the Republican side, Bob Guzzardi turned in his completed petitions.

The democrat field was narrowed by one today when John Hanger dropped out of the race, meanwhile Tom Wolf, Representative Allyson Schwartz, Treasurer Rob McCord, Auditor Jack Wagner and Kathleen McGinty are the five democrats.

The chairman of the local Democratic Party feels confident with the five candidates, saying they're all qualified for the position.

Meanwhile, the chairman of the local Republican Party says Governor Corbett has done enough to continue leading Pennsylvania.
