Tom Knox Withdraws from Pa. Governor Race, Backs Onorato
by KYW's Tony Romeo
Former Philadelphia mayoral candidate Tom Knox is out of the race for Pennsylvania governor.
Businessman Tom Knox says he is dropping out of the race for governor and endorsing Allegheny County chief executive Dan Onorato, whom Knox says shares his vision.
Knox, who spent millions of his own money running for mayor of Philadelphia, told reporters on a conference call on Friday that he was prepared to do the same in a run for governor:
“I was going to, by and large, just fund it completely. I was just about to put $5 million in, just to show people that we were for real. Believe me, it’s not the money -– it’s not the money at all. And you know I’ve done really well in life, and I can afford to do this if I want to.”For full story go to: http://www.kyw1060.com/
