State Treasurer Rob McCord of Bryn Mawr today took the first step towards entering the crowded 2014 Democratic primary election for governor.  McCord filed with the Pennsylvania Department of State paperwork to launch "McCord for Governor," a political action committee that will allow him to accept campaign contributions for the race.

A copy of McCord's filing, obtained by the Daily News, can be seen here.

"This new committee is a reflection of the fact that, over the last few months, Rob has heard from voters and community leaders from around the state that they want a change in Harrisburg and he's putting the pieces in place to deliver that change," McCord spokesman Mark Nevins said, via email. "The fact is, we can't keep electing professional, career politicians and expect things to be different. As a business leader, not a career politician, Rob is uniquely qualified to deliver real results."

The Democratic field currently consists of U.S. Rep. Allyson Schwartz of Jenkintown, former state Department of Environmental Protection secretaries Kathleen McGinty of Wayne and John Hanger of Hummelstown, former state Department of Revenue Secretary Tom Wolf of York and Mechanicsburg pastor Max Myers.

McCord easily secured a second term as treasurer last year, defeating his Republican challenger by more than 8 points.
