ALLENTOWN, Pa. -

A former Pennsylvania governor endorsed a possible future governor Thursday night -- for mayor.

Ed Rendell held a fundraiser for Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski at a Philadelphia law firm.

But Pawlowski's camp says the benefit was for his mayoral campaign, not his upcoming run for governor.

The event reportedly raised more than $50,000 for Pawlowski.

Pawlowski completed his gubernatorial campaign kick-off tour around the state Thursday.
