Salena Zito has the scoop:
Republican state Attorney General Tom Corbett today filed paperwork to establish an exploratory committee to run for governor in 2010.Tom has supported me. I certainly support him. Flashback: A chilly autumn morning in Burgettstown, 2006.
Corbett, 59, of Shaler is expected to hold an evening conference call with key Republicans and state committee members to discuss his plans.
Corbett decided to run after talking with people across the state, party leaders and his family, said spokesman John Brabender.
