A state senator who once considered running for Pennsylvania governor next year says he'll seek the Democratic nomination for lieutenant governor instead.

Senator Mike Stack of Philadelphia announced his change in plans earlier today.

Also, Democratic Congressman Bob Brady of Philadelphia, who had supported Stack for governor, endorsed Congresswoman Allyson Schwartz in the eight-way Democratic gubernatorial race.

At least three other Democrats are running for lieutenant governor, including Harrisburg city councilman Brad Koplinski.

Candidates for governor and lieutenant governor run separately in the primary and the winners are joined on party tickets for the general election.
