What to look for on Smart Talk Monday, December 2, 2013:
There are eight Democrats running for governor in Pennsylvania to unseat Republican incumbent Tom Corbett.
Even though Democratic voters won't choose their nominee until the primary six months from now, the candidates have been running hard while trying to get noticed or to separate themselves from the rest of the field.
Over the next few months, Smart Talk will feature discussions with the candidates in an effort to determine where they stand on the issues and help voters make decisions.
Max Myers, a pastor from Cumberland County, who is venturing into the world of politics for the first time, will be a guest on Monday's program.

Also, the Historic Harrisburg Association holds its annual Candlelight House Tour in the Midtown part of the city Sunday, December 8. An organization that has a mission of revitalization and preservation with an emphasis on architecture is looking for ways to attract visitors to the Capital City.
Historic Harrisburg's Executive Director John Campbell, who also is the city's treasurer, appears on Smart Talk to explain.
