Former Pittsburgh mayoral candidate and city council president Jack Wagner told reporters today he'll decide soon if he wants to run for governor. 

From the AP:

HARRISBURG, Pennsylvania — Former Pennsylvania Auditor General Jack Wagner said Monday he'll announce by the end of this year whether he plans to seek the Democratic nomination for governor in 2014.

Wagner, also a former state senator from Pittsburgh, won two statewide elections as auditor general. He fielded reporters' questions about his political future at a Capitol news conference, during which he also criticized the legislative stalemate on transportation funding.

Wagner would be the only candidate from western Pennsylvania in a Democratic primary field that has already expanded to eight people who want to challenge Republican Gov. Tom Corbett's re-election bid.
