Corbett Quits Scheduled GOP Debate

PCN,  the non-profit cable network covering Pennsylvania government and culture,  has announced that it is canceling the debate scheduled for tomorrow between State Rep. Sam Rohrer and Pennsylvania Attorney General Tom Corbett after Corbett announced he would not attend. Rohrer and Corbett are the candidates in the GOP gubernatorial primary which is May 18.

Rohrer said both teams had confirmed participation and that he remains willing to debate.

The debate was to be held at 1 p.m. at PCN’s studio at Camp Hill and co-hosted by  ABC27 and the Pennsylvania Independent.

A call-In program was to follow the live debate in which viewers would be able to directly address the guest.

In other election news, State Rep. Bryan Lentz (D-161) who is almost certainly going to be the Democratic nominee in the race to replace Congressman Joe Sestak in the 7th District, has had a turnout of five persons at town halls he held Monday and Tuesday in Brookhaven and Radnor despite the governments of both municipalities being controlled by Democrats.
