Political Football

Lynn Swann left his job as an ABC sideline reporter at season's end and threw his hat into the ring of candidates in the race for governor of Pennsylvania. The former Pittsburgh Steeler and USC receiver took his lumps early, but has clawed back against Bill Scranton, his main opponent in the battle for the Republican nomination. The race took an ugly turn this week when Scranton campaign manager James Seif said on a televised call-in show, "The rich white guy in this campaign is Lynn Swann." Seif was fired by Scranton, who is scrambling to put his campaign back together with the hope of winning the nomination and challenging Democratic incumbent Ed Rendell in November. Here is a link to Swann's website.
