Pennsylvania GOP Will Disapprove in Major Key Areas for Governor, Senate – NBC10 Philadelphia

Pennsylvania Republicans on Saturday decided to disapprove in huge preliminary fields for governor, US Senate and lieutenant colonel governor, ensuring that races this spring will be much more open. .

The party banned reporters from going to the ballroom where the winter meeting was held at a Lancaster hotel. However, committee members and candidates said the party held a voice vote against the endorsement.

Party members had predicted for months that no one would win approval.

Also, no candidate can claim Donald Trump’s endorsement. The former president endorsed Sean Parnell in the Senate primaries, but Parnell ended his campaign in November amid an ugly custody battle with his estranged wife.

This is the first time in decades that Pennsylvania has held an election for an open Senate seat and an open governor’s office.

The main field for governor has double-digit depth, while the fields for the Senate and the lieutenant colonel each have at least half a dozen candidates.

The Senate field is notable for wealthy and well-connected candidates moving from out of state to run for office, including Mehmet Oz, who is best known as a host. daytime television show “The Dr. Oz Show,” and David McCormick, the recently resigned CEO of one of the world’s largest hedge funds.

Meanwhile, both the candidate and their allies are spending millions of dollars on TV ads. Primary is May 17th.
