He's not yet a candidate officially, but Attorney General Tom Corbett has rounded out his campaign team roster for the 2010 governor's race.

In a letter to Republican state committee members, Corbett announced ten more top members of his campaign staff - all veterans of Republican campaigns in Pennsylvania and elsewhere.

They are:

Returnees include Brian Nutt who's back as Corbett's campaign manager.

Also John Brabender, of Brabender Cox, returns as media advisor and Lynda Bowman re-joins Team Corbett as comptroller.

Leslie Gromis Baker, who served as campaign manager for Gov. Tom Ridge's re-election campaign in 1998, signs on as senior advisor and Brian Tringali of the Tarrance Group will serve as pollster for the campaign.

David James of FLS connect (former head of the Republican Committee of Chester County) will serve as strategic advisor for voter contact

Other members of the finance team include Amy Petraglia and Carey Dunn Siriani and Kristin Clark Corrigan. 

On board since March are Bob Asher and Jack Barbour as general co-chairman for Corbett's exploratory committee, C. Alan Walker and Christine Toretti as finance committee chairs, William Sasso and Peter Barcz as chairman and treasurer respectively of the Political Action Committee and Hon.
