State Attorney General Tom Corbett has filed the paperwork needed to form an exploratory committee to run for governor in 2010. By forming an exploratory committee, Corbett can raise money, gauge support in the party and the community and begin organizing his campaign. Corbett has served as attorney general since 2004 and was re-elected last year. He is now one of three Republican candidates who have filed paperwork for exploratory committees. United States Representative Jim Gerlach and Former U.S. Attorney Pat Meehan formed their committees last month. Corbett said he decided to run after hearing large amounts of grass roots support and doesn't see a problem in transitioning from a law enforcement position to the office of governor.
