One state over, prosecutors don’t use the federal building as their campaign HQ

The U.S. Attorney for Pennsylvania, Patrick Meehan, has announced his resignation. The word is that Meehan is considering a bid for the Republican nomination for Governor in 2010, when incumbent Edward Rendell is term-limited. Meehan’s term doesn’t end until January 20, 2009, but apparently he doesn’t think it’s appropriate to explore a possible statewide campaign (he’s also a potential U.S. Senate candidate if Arlen Specter doesn’t seek re-election) while serving as a federal prosecutor.
