Heinz Returns to PA, Possible Political Career
“[Pittsburgh] offers a lot of what I’m interested in: a financial sector, a nonprofit sector and great sports,” Heinz told Gannon. “The leadership here right now is exciting. The corporate sector is in good shape and you look at the Allegheny Conference on Community Development: There’s a strong set of people…a lot of awesome people in town and I’m super-excited about it.”
Heinz also said that a political career is “not on my radar”. Nevertheless, he has the name, money and background that would make him a prime candidate in the future.
The one major issue is the question of which party he’s in. Senator Heinz was a Republican and Secretary Kerry is a Democrat.
Apparently we’ll just have to wait to see if he ever does seek office.
