Two Third-Party Candidates
(AP) — At least two third-party candidates are planning to run for governor
against the Republican and Democratic nominees.
Krawchuk, who ran unsuccessfully for governor in 1998 and 2002, said Thursday
he expects to claim the Libertarian Party's nomination at this weekend
convention in Bethlehem.
Glover, a community economic development consultant in Philadelphia, is unopposed
for the Green Party nomination at its convention in State College in early
March. The 66-year-old Glover is a longtime activist who helped organize the
party in the 1980s.
candidates for governor in Pennsylvania must gather nearly 17,000 voters'
signatures between March 12 and Aug. 1 to be listed on the November ballot.
and Democratic candidates need only 2,000 signatures, but must win their
party's nominations in the primary election.
