My childhood Steeler hero Lynn Swann is likely to be the Republican candidate for Governor in Pennsylvania in the upcoming election. Swann, a resident of Sewickley Heights (a suburb of Pittsburgh), is statistically tied with incumbent Governor Ed Rendell in a recent poll.
An interesting quote from Swann, from the Post article:
Swann is seeking to become Pennsylvania’s first black governor. Though he has revealed little about his political philosophy, he has said the Democratic Party has “taken the African American vote for granted.”
This is gonna be interesting.
