HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - A Libertarian Party activist is the first third-party candidate to enter the Pennsylvania governor's race.

Ken Krawchuk, who ran unsuccessfully for governor in 1998 and 2002, said Thursday he'll seek the Libertarian Party's nomination at its convention this weekend in Bethlehem.

As a third-party candidate, Krawchuk must gather more than 16,000 voters' signatures between March 12 and Aug. 1 to be listed on the November ballot. Republican and Democratic candidates need only 2,000 signatures, but must win their party's nominations in the May 20 primary in order to run in the general election.

Krawchuk, a 60-year-old information technology consultant from the Philadelphia suburb of Abington, advocates separating the roles of society and government. He favors smaller government and lower taxes and opposes laws that criminalize marijuana and outlaw same-sex marriage.
