HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Katie McGinty says she’ll be the first prospective Democratic candidate in a big field seeking to challenge Gov. Tom Corbett to air a TV ad.

McGinty said her first ad will run Tuesday night on CNN and MSNBC, sandwiched around television coverage of President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address.

She says the ad will run 30 seconds. She’s not saying how much she’s spending on it, although rival campaigns say she purchased just $6,400 worth of air time. She’s a former environmental adviser to the Clinton White House and ex-Gov. Ed Rendell.

McGinty says her campaign raised $2.4 million last year. Including her, four Democratic candidates collectively say they marshaled about $28 million before Jan. 1 for the campaign.

The primary election is May 20.
