Democrat Pawlowski Exits Pa. Gubernatorial Race


    Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski

    Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski is dropping out of the race for the Democratic nomination for governor of Pennsylvania.
    Pawlowski said Monday at a news conference in Allentown that raising the money he would need in a statewide race is a full-time job that makes it difficult to carry out his responsibilities as chief executive of Pennsylvania's third largest city.

      Pawlowski, who was elected to a third term as mayor in 2013, threw his support behind fellow Democrat and state Treasurer Rob McCord, who joined him at the news conference.
    Pawlowski's departure leaves McCord and six other prospective candidates for the Democratic nomination to challenge Republican Gov. Tom Corbett, who is seeking re-election
    On Tuesday, Corbett is scheduled to lay out his proposed state budget in an address to the Legislature.
