Razor's Next Governor? Via AP
Former Steelers star Lynn Swann declared his candidacy for Pennsylvania governor Wednesday in the city where he made his name in professional football.
He told The Associated Press in an interview Wednesday afternoon that he made up his mind to run in the fall, after spending months weighing support at events around the state.
And he's a Republican, too.
Swann said Wednesday that he hopes to convince blacks that he is a better candidate than [Ed] Rendell, the former Philadelphia mayor. The Democratic Party has "taken the African American vote for granted," Swann said.
As a commenter here
notes, anyone aiming to give Swann the treatment Maryland's Michael Steele got
should make sure to be at least in Harrisburg.
