Wolf Picks Up Peduto Endorsement
YORK, Pa. (AP) - Pittsburgh's mayor and a host of other politicians from western Pennsylvania have endorsed Democrat Tom Wolf for governor.
Mayor Bill Peduto, Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald, U.S. Rep. Mike Doyle and Allegheny County Democratic Committee Chairwoman Nancy Mills are among dozens of elected and party officials from the region who pledged their support on Saturday.
Wolf, who's never run for public office, is one of seven Democrats seeking the party's nomination to challenge Republican Gov. Tom Corbett. The primary election is May 20.
The York County businessman has been airing TV ads statewide since Jan. 30, thanks largely to the $10 million he gave of his own money to his campaign. The ad exposure has made him the first candidate to break away from the primary pack in independent polls.
Campus Weapons Policies Examined
PITTSBURGH (AP) - The group that oversees Pennsylvania's state-owned universities might scrap a plan to institute a uniform weapons policy at all 14 campuses.
Frank Brogan, chancellor of the State System of Higher Education, tells the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that the system could instead allow individual schools to set their own weapons policies.
The system's board had planned to vote on a draft policy in January, but the vote was postponed to allow for additional study.
The existing proposal would ban weapons in campus buildings and at sporting events, outdoor class meetings and assemblies. Guns generally would be allowed in outdoor areas and in parked cars.
Some critics, including the faculty union, called for an outright weapons ban, while gun rights supporters said it went too far and would endanger safety.
