Texas Gov. Perry to boost Corbett re-election campaign Wednesday
Texas Gov. Rick Perry will join Gov. Tom Corbett to kick off his re-election campaign in Western Pennsylvania on Wednesday in Canonsburg.
The Lone Star State Republican, who has served two-and-a-half terms as governor, said last summer he will not seek re-election. Perry will lead a 3 p.m. rally for Corbett at the Hilton Gardens Inn Southpointe lobby.
The event is billed as “Energy Families for Corbett.” Several gas drilling companies have headquarters at the Southpointe industrial park.
Corbett ran unopposed in Tuesday's Republican primary for his party's nomination.
The Shaler native will face Democrat Tom Wolf, a York County businessman, in the November election.
Perry unsuccessfully sought the GOP nomination for president in 2012. He indicated he would try again in 2016, when he met with GOP strategists last month in New Hampshire, the first primary state.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
