Governor Corbett is flanked by U.S. Senator Pat Toomey, former Governor Tom Ridge, and Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell look on.

(Harrisburg) -- Governor Corbett hasn't formally announced plans to seek a second term next year. But, newly-released schedules from the first four months of this year show him holding at least 29 campaign meetings around Pennsylvania and beyond.

The schedules have been released, six weeks after The Associated Press sought them under the state's Right-to-Know Law. The AP asked for the records one day after a favorable Commonwealth Court ruling in a two-and-a-half-year-old legal dispute over a previous request for his schedule and emails.

The redacted schedules indicate Corbett participated in campaign-related meetings at restaurants, law firms, private clubs and homes. They were scattered throughout the state, and took place in Washington, D.C., and Chicago.

The governor released 12 emails either to or from him that cover the four-month period.
