Pennsylvania gubernatorial candidate Lynn Swann announced yesterday that he is releasing a book that details his hopes and visions for the Keystone state. The book, entitled "A New Direction: My Plan for a Better Pennsylvania" will be given out at campaign stops and can be purchased for $10.00 from Swann's website (http://www.blackpolicy.org/black-races.php?s=PA).
Releasing a book is not uncommon for candidates, although usually done by presidential candidates, but Mr. Swann may need the added attention and vehicle. The GOP nominee trails incumbent Governor Ed Rendell by double digits and a quarter of the citizens polled in a recent survey are neutral or unsure of how they feel about him (click here to view the poll http://www.blackpolicy.org/black-races.php?s=PA).
The race is still within reach but the Swann campaign needs something to jump start their effort, maybe "A New Direction" is the answer.
