Matthews Eyes Harrisburg Job
“That is not the case. I cannot and would not, and I don’t mean this pejoratively against the Democrats, but I will not run as a Democrat. I am a Republican. Does that preclude running as an independent? No, but we’ll see what arises. That’s a long time from now, and I’m focused on getting Corbett elected right now. The general’s a good man and he will run a good government, and history has shown that Pennsylvania changes teams every two terms. It’s just history, so I think Corbett’s got the inside track.”
Matthews says he plans to hold a fundraiser for Corbett and he has offered his services as a surrogate speaker. He says he knows Corbett’s platform and issues and he would be glad to speak for him at any time.
