GOP Caucus Meeting Straw Poll Results: Lieutenant Governor

Ahead of the PA GOP’s winter meeting the regional caucuses hold straw polls of the state party members to measure support for each of the candidates.

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.

    No Republicans. PERIOD

    Can’t trust them. Few of them have any spine.
    It appears that they are only in it for big coperations and themselves.
    I plan on working for qualified candidates who have all of our interests in mind, and plan for the future of a global world.

    I love how the Northeast voted for Jeff Bartos even though he blasted Lou while he was still running for the the US Senate… talk about short term memory, says a lot about how loyal those people are.

    What is NECRA? Capital Region?

      NECRA stands for Northeast Central Republican Association.
