Scranton not running for Senate

Scranton not running for Senate

Former Lt. Gov. Bill Scranton’s name has been bandied about a lot in recent days as Republicans have cast about for a new Senate candidate.

In an interview with pa2010.com today, Scranton made it clear he’s not interested.

“I’m not a candidate for the Senate,” he said, adding that people had approached him to encourage a run, but that he decided it’s not for him.

“I thought about it, and I’ve never wanted to to be a Senator,” he said.

Scranton has wanted to be Governor in the past, and he tried twice, losing campaigns for the office in 1986 and 2006. Late last year, his name had also been floated as a potential gubernatorial candidate, but he’s not interested in that either.

“I am retired and on the sidelines,” he said.

Scranton said he’d be watching the Senate race, and may make an endorsement down the road.

“I’m not one of these people who think that Toomey can’t win,” he said. “If Toomey is our candidate I can easily support him.”

    Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.
