Dan Onorato tells KDKA's Jon Delano he won't rule out another statewide run (perhaps for auditor general), but that he hasn't made up his mind on a third run for county exec next spring either. He also gets into his stunning loss of Allegheny County in the governor's race:
Delano: “Did that disappoint you?”
Onorato: “It did a little bit, but you have to look at the numbers, Jon. I basically tied, maybe lost by 400, 500, something like that.”
Onorato stresses that he got 11,000 more votes than he did when he first ran against Republican incumbent Jim Roddey in 2003.
“I got more votes in Allegheny County than I ever did in my political career,” he said.
His new statewide name recognition positions him for future runs in 2012 for either Corbett’s job as attorney general or auditor general, where incumbent Jack Wagner is term-limited.
“I would never rule anything out. There’s a lot of options on the public sector side, if I stay in public life,” he said. “I would look at all of them.”
