PITTSBURGH (AP) - Former President Bill Clinton is coming to Pittsburgh to campaign for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Tom Wolf.

The Wolf campaign said Clinton will lead a mid-day rally Monday at an electrical workers’ union hall on Pittsburgh’s South Side. Wolf is challenging Republican Gov. Tom Corbett’s re-election bid.

Clinton is the third political celebrity to campaign for Wolf in as many weeks, following separate appearances in Philadelphia by his wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and first lady Michelle Obama.

Like them, Clinton is beating a path around the country campaigning for Democrats who are running for governor or U.S. Senate.

Corbett is Pennsylvania’s former two-term attorney general from suburban Pittsburgh. Wolf is a first-time candidate from York County who ran his family’s furniture and cabinet-distribution business for almost three decades.

The election is Nov. 4.
