STATE ROW OFFICE VICTORS SEATEDPennsylvania has a new auditor general, and the state's new attorney general made history twice. Auditor General Eugene DePasquale, a former state representative from York, was the first in an all-Democrat slate of row officers to be sworn in Tuesday to four-year terms. DePasquale succeeds Jack Wagner who was term limited. He was sworn in at the State museum Kathleen Kane of Scranton — the first woman and first Democrat to be elected state attorney general —took her oath of office with Governor Corbett watching. Kane has said she will investigate the Governor’s role when he was Attorney General in the Sandusky child abuse investigation. State Treasurer Rob McCord took his oath for a second term at a ceremony in The Keystone Building located across the street from the Capitol.
The three swearing in ceremonies looked like a "Where's Waldo" game of who will oppose the incumbent Corbett in the 2014 Governor's race.
