Jay Paterno, the son of Hall of Fame ex-Penn State football coach Joe Paterno, is telling party officials that he'll seek the Democratic nomination for lieutenant governor.

Two state Democratic Party officials, Roger Lund of the southcentral party caucus and Harry Lawrence of the southeast party caucus, said Paterno called them Thursday and told them that he's circulating petitions to get on the May 20 primary ballot.
