GOP Caucus Meeting Straw Poll Results: Lieutenant Governor
After the Central, Northeast, and NECRA caucuses met on January 6th businessman Jeff Bartos is leading among the three declared Lieutenant Governor candidates with 94 votes. Former state Rep. Gordon Denlinger is in second with 24 votes, and former state Treasurer candidate Otto Voit in third with 19 votes.
Bartos, who is running as a ticket with state Sen. Scott Wagner outperformed Wagner overall in the straw polls. Wagner finished the first three with 91 votes.
“These three decisive straw poll victories are another sign that Republicans want the Wagner-Bartos team to clean up Harrisburg and bring some private-sector common sense to our government,” Bartos said after the straw polls.
Below are the caucus votes from the weekend. They will be updated as the votes continue in the coming weeks.
