(Pittsburgh) -- Governor Corbett is officially running for a second term.
The Republican has announced his campaign in a speech at the Heinz History Center in Pittsburgh.
In the face of dropping poll numbers, he says he's running because his work in the commonwealth is not done.
"Our promises were contained in four words: more jobs and less taxes. We kept that promise and today we are adding one more line: promises kept."
Corbett ticked off a list of accomplishments, including on-time budgets, increasing education aid, and lawsuit reform.
He's expected to visit the midstate soon, with stops in Hershey, Lancaster and York scheduled.
Eight Democrats are vying for the nomination to compete against the incumbent in the 20-14 general election.
They've criticized him for failing to properly fund education, an unemployment rate that's higher than the national average and policies that hurt lower-income families.
