There may soon be a republican name in the hat to run against Tom Corbett in the race for governor in Pennsylvania in 2014.  A republican who opposed Corbett when he was elected Attorney General in 2004 says he may take the governor on in the primary. Bruce Castor, a former Montgomery County District Attorney and now a county commissioner, confirmed Wednesday he's seriously considering challenging Corbett for the Republican nomination. He's the first republican to publically express interest in challenging Corbett. He says he expects to make up his mind by this spring. Castor lost the 2004 GOP nomination for state attorney general to Corbett by more then 5 percentage points.
