Corbett weighs options in final weeks as governor

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – His days as Pennsylvania governor numbered, Gov. Tom Corbett says his options for life outside of government could include working on a 2016 presidential campaign.

In an interview with The Associated Press on Wednesday, Corbett said he has “great interest” in the evolving field of potential candidates for the Republican nomination.

Corbett will step down in January after serving one four-year term.

Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a possible presidential hopeful, campaigned for Corbett in his unsuccessful re-election bid. Corbett says he knows former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, also potential contenders.

Corbett says he’s not settled on any candidate, but would be available if the right candidate seeks his help.

Corbett says he also might teach or accept a seat on a corporate board.
