MINIMUM WAGE-GOVERNOR'S RACES
Minimum-wage increase could be Democratic challengers' golden key to governor's offices

Democrats hoping to unseat Republican governors running for re-election next year are increasingly taking up the cause of a minimum wage increase.
The issue is particularly prominent in states that Obama won last year.
In Pennsylvania, candidate Katie McGinty says she's the first in a big field of Democrats vying to challenge Republican Gov. Tom Corbett to say that they support it.
Thus far the Republicans whom Democrats view as most vulnerable aren't changing their minds, and neither are the business groups that tend to back Republicans.
