Pat Meehan has company in GOP race
Meehan, a former Delaware County district attorney and U.S. attorney, has not yet formally announced his candidacy for the Republican nod. But most believe it is only a matter of time before he does. Last week he was raising money at the Drexelbrook and was boosted by two Delco legends – Pat Croce and Vince Papale.
But Meehan is not the only candidate testing the waters. And the challenge is coming from his own party.
State Attorney General Tom Corbett Monday filed paperwork with the state after he set up an exploratory committee, Tom Corbett for Governor. Like Meehan, he also has put up a Web site.
Both guys likely will paint themselves as crime- and corruption-busters.
Instead of beating up on crime, these two law and order guys might stage a battle royal for the Republican nomination.
