Ed Rendell, You Have Been Served

At the annual Franklin County Republican dinner last night, Pennsylvania Republican State Senator Jeffrey E. Piccola announced his intention to challenge Ed Rendell for Governor in 2006.

“That rumor is true. I am running for governor of Pennsylvania,” the Dauphin County senator told the audience at the Lighthouse Restaurant.

“The commonwealth needs to go in a new direction … and the biggest impediment is a gentleman by the name of Ed Rendell,” said Piccola, who was first elected to the state House of Representatives in 1997 and to the Senate in 1995.

Them’s fightin’ words. Just remember Senator, you are going to have to beat out Swannie first.
