CHAMBERSBURG, PA. - Franklin County has rarely been fertile ground for Democrats seeking statewide offices, but Pennsylvania Gov. Edward G. Rendell stopped in this Republican bastion Tuesday to tout his administration's record from the past 3 1/2 years, tailoring many of his statistics to the local audience. Rendell told the audience of more than 130 people - including a number of Republicans - at the Franklin Fire Co. for a breakfast hosted by the county Democratic Committee that opponents have claimed he cares primarily about Philadelphia, where he was once mayor.
