Jack Wagner Weighs Possible 2014 Bid for Governor



Former Pennsylvania Auditor General Jack Wagner says he's giving serious thought to entering the already crowded 2014 Democratic race for governor.
 
Wagner said Monday that his 20 years in state government has instilled in him a passion for good government and that he would offer common-sense solutions to politically thorny issues like transportation funding and public-school reform.
The 65-year-old Wagner won two statewide races as auditor general but lost the 2010 Democratic gubernatorial nomination to former Allegheny County executive Dan Onorato.
 
In May, Wagner was the runner-up for the mayoral nomination in his home city of Pittsburgh. Wagner would be the only gubernatorial candidate from western Pennsylvania in a field of six other hopefuls.
 
He says he'll make up his mind in September about whether to run.
