At least two third-party candidates are planning to run for governor against the Republican and Democratic nominees.
Ken Krawchuk, who ran unsuccessfully for governor in 1998 and 2002, said Thursday he expects to claim the Libertarian Party's nomination at this weekend's convention in Bethlehem.
Paul Glover, a community economic development consultant in Philadelphia, is unopposed for the Green Party nomination at its convention in State College in early March. The 66-year-old Glover is a longtime activist who helped organize the party in the 1980s.

Third-party candidates for governor in Pennsylvania must gather nearly 17,000 voters' signatures between March 12 and Aug. 1 to be listed on the November ballot.
Republican and Democratic candidates need only 2,000 signatures, but must win their party's nominations in the primary election.
