HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Gov. Tom Corbett is poised to receive a re-election endorsement from the Republican State Committee, but that doesn't necessary mean the party is united behind him.
Heading into Saturday's meeting, Corbett's support remains weak within the GOP. A new Franklin & Marshall College poll says fewer than half of Pennsylvania's 3 million Republican voters think he deserves a second term.
Some conservatives resent Corbett's newly signed $2.3 billion transportation funding program because they say it violates his 2010 campaign pledge not to raise taxes or fees.
Business groups and others supporting Corbett's re-election bid say he's got plenty of major accomplishments to boast about.
No one's expected to challenge Corbett for the endorsement, but conservative activist Bob Guzzardi, a businessman from Ardmore, hopes to challenge Corbett in the primary.
