ALLENTOWN, Pa. -

Pennsylvania Democrats fresh off a big election day now have their eyes on another prize: the Governor's office. 

And a Lehigh Valley politician may take aim at that seat in 2014.

Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski tells the Associated Press that he's seriously considering running for governor.

Although Pawlowski did tell the AP that his main priority is winning a third term as Allentown's mayor.

In addition to Pawlowski, Philadelphia businessman Tom Knox, York businessman Tom Wolf and former state environmental official John Hanger have all been mentioned as possible candidates for governor.
