Gubernatorial candidates to get quizzed at forum

April 9, 2014

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania's four Democratic gubernatorial candidates will meet in suburban Harrisburg for a forum to answer questions from three journalists.

Wednesday's 90-minute forum at Widener University's law school campus begins at 7 p.m.

Participating will be former Clinton White House environmental adviser Katie McGinty, U.S. Rep. Allyson Schwartz and businessman Tom Wolf. State Treasurer Rob McCord has a scheduling conflict and won't attend.

All live in Philadelphia's suburbs, except for Wolf, who lives in York County.

The winner of the May 20 primary election gets the Democratic Party's nomination to challenge Republican Gov. Tom Corbett in the Nov. 4 election.

The Democratic candidates largely agree on the hot topics, including expanding Medicaid under the 2010 federal health care law, raising the minimum wage and raising taxes on the natural gas industry.
