HARRISBURG (AP) – Jake Corman, the ranking Republican in the PA Senate is widely expected to run for governor and has begun inviting donors to an announcement next Thursday night. The event is billed as a “special announcement” in Corman’s hometown of Bellefonte, Centre County. Corman’s entry into the race would swell an already big field of Republicans running for the post to succeed outgoing Democrat Gov. Tom Wolf. Corman is the Senate’s President Pro Tempore and has served in the Senate since 1999. Corman has said he would discuss his political plans after Tuesday’s election.
