Bill Scranton, former Lieutenant Governor is to announce his bid for PA Governor's office this week

Scranton is going to make the official announcement this week, finally. He is a Republican and is a potential 2006 gubernatorial candidate against Ed Rendell, Dem.

He'll be at the Renaissance Pittsburgh Hotel, 107 Sixth St., in downtown Pittsburgh for a 4 pm event on Tuesday, October 18, 2005. Door open at 3:30 pm.

I don't know if it is "free" to attend, but I would expect so. The fundraisers are generally before or after those public announcments. He'll be in other parts of the state in the days ahead and after.

Personally, it is hard to think about 2006 until after the vote in 2005. I think responsible media needs to feed voters more info on the next vote -- and not news of 2006.
