Reader Poll: Casey Least Likely to be on Ballot for Gov

PoliticsPA Readers feel that Senator Bob Casey is less likely to appear on the ballot for Governor, and that Former Rep. Kathy Dahlkemper is more likely to appear on the ballot for Lieutenant Governor..

PoliticsPA asked: which candidate floating his or her name around for Governor in 2014 is least likely to appear on the ballot? Casey, who has hinted that he will not run, received 23 percent of the vote (206 votes). 

The next closest to him was Dahlkemper at 10 percent (88 votes) and State Senator Daylin Leach at 8 percent (71 votes). There were 901 respondents.
The book was out on Casey, who some believed would take a run at Gov. Tom Corbett in 2014. However, with the looming ‘fiscal cliff,’ and his public comments suggesting he’s happy where he is now, a run for Governor isn’t in the cards.

Readers believe that Dahlkemper has the best chance to land the position, with 24 percent (98 votes).

    I could not hope for a better ticket than Joe Sestak for Governor and Kathy Dahlkemper for Lieutenant Governor. PA will rock with those two.

    Any other Western PA Dems floating their names for Lt Gov?
