Rafferty ends quest for Pa. attorney general post



State Sen. John Rafferty, who represents the 44th State Senate District comprising Berks, Chester and Montgomery counties, said today hree is ending his quest for election to the post of Pennsylvania attorney general.
Rafferty told the Associated Press in Harrisburg that he ended the campaign he started two months ago, at the bidding of Gov. Tom Corbett.
Rafferty said that Corbett told him he would be backing Cumberland County District Attorney David Freed for the Republican nomination for attorney general, the AP reported.
Rafferty said he would step aside out of respect for  Corbett’s position as the titular head of the state Republican Party.
