HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - For an off-election year, 2013 in Pennsylvania offered plenty of political intrigue.
The travails of Republican Gov. Tom Corbett inspired at least eight Democrats to seek the nomination to challenge him in 2014.
Attorney General Kathleen Kane took office in January as the first woman and the first Democrat to be elected as Pennsylvania's chief legal officer. She's worked with her fellow Democratic row officers to hold the GOP administration's feet to the fire.
Court battles raged over a photo-identification requirement for Pennsylvania voters and the state's ban on same-sex marriage. And the state's top court struck down rules limiting local governments' power to control where natural gas drilling occurs.
But the only statewide contest on the 2013 election ballot was for an opening on the state Superior Court.
