Former Pennsylvania Environmental Secretary Kathleen McGinty said Tuesday that she was considering entering the potentially crowded Democratic race for governor in 2014.

"I'm very serious about it," McGinty said during a visit to the state Capitol. "I think having a centrist, pro-jobs, pro-growth, and pro-environment approach is something that Pennsylvania needs and will respond positively to."

A Chester County resident, McGinty, 49, said she would take a leave from her job as an executive with West Chester-based Weston Solutions Inc. to concentrate on the prospective campaign.

McGinty headed the Department of Environmental Protection for more than five years under Gov. Ed Rendell. She recently filed papers to form a political action committee. - AP
