What to look for on Smart Talk Wednesday, January 8, 2014:
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 five 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 weeks, Smart Talk will feature discussions with the candidates in an effort to determine where they stand on the issues and help voters make decisions.
Tom Wolf, Pennsylvania's former Secretary of Revenue and a successful York County businessman appears on Wednesday's Smart Talk.

Also, Stateline, a project of the Pew Charitable Trusts, has released its annual State of the States series. The series is a look at the trends and issues that will get the most attention in state capitals in 2014.
Appearing on Wednesday's program to discuss Pennsylvania and how it compares to other states is Scott Greenberger, Stateline's Editor.
Among the issues we'll focus on are jobs, healthcare, same-sex marriage, and privacy.
