Ex-Steeler Swann Eyes Pa. Governor Post

"Former Steelers star Lynn Swann has taken the first step toward running for governor of Pennsylvania.

The Hall of Fame wide receiver filed papers Wednesday forming a campaign committee for governor, which allows him to begin raising money for a campaign.

Mr. Swann, a Republican, has worked as a broadcaster since his retirement as a wide receiver.

'I will spend time introducing myself to communities across the commonwealth,' he said in a statement. 'As I consider my personal decision regarding the upcoming gubernatorial race, we will also explore the potential political and financial support for my candidacy.'
