HERSHEY, Pa. - Pennsylvania Democrats failed Saturday to bestow the party's official endorsement on any of the candidates seeking the nomination in the May 20 primary to run against Gov. Corbett.
State Democratic committee members scattered their votes among five candidates over two rounds of balloting, with none receiving the 66.66 percent majority required to earn the endorsement.
Treasurer Rob McCord got the most votes, and he claimed a moral victory, with U.S. Rep. Allyson Y. Schwartz finishing second. On the second ballot, McCord had 154 votes, to 77 for Schwartz.
