Corbett Gets the Gas Money

from "Corbett leads everyone in gas-industry donations," by Bob Warner, in today's Daily News:

The front-running candidate for governor, Tom Corbett, a leading opponent of taxes on Pennsylvania's emerging shale-gas industry, has accepted more than $700,000 in campaign donations from that industry, more than all other Pennsylvania candidates combined.

Running a distant second in support from the gas industry, with $148,000 in donations, is a politician who won't even appear on next month's ballots - state Senate Republican leader Joe Scarnati, whose caucus has so far blocked action on an extraction tax.
