PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — In what could have been a bit of an awkward moment, Mayor Bill Peduto and Gov. Tom Corbett joked at Thursday’s news conference — just days after Peduto endorsed fellow Democrat Tom Wolf to replace Corbett.

KDKA political editor Jon Delano asked the question.

Delano: “Last Saturday, the mayor stood next to a candidate who wants to replace the governor as governor of Pennsylvania.”

Corbett: “I haven’t needled him about that yet.”

Peduto: “I was waiting for it.”

Delano: “What does this say about your relationship?”

Peduto: “I can honestly say that my relationship with the governor has been very cordial. The moment he decides to run for governor on the Democratic ticket, I would probably endorse him.”

Corbett: “The mayor just endorsed somebody else. Didn’t need to endorse somebody. I’m going to remind him if Mr. Wolf isn’t there that he didn’t need to endorse anybody.”
