Reader Poll: Cawley Easy Favorite for LG Nom
Jim Cawley topped the poll with 362 votes, far outpolling State Rep. Daryl Metcalfe with 67. 28 believe someone else will be nominated, while former State Rep., gubernatorial candidate and Senate candidate Sam Rohrer received 16 votes.
Cawley won a 9-way primary as the committee-endorsed candidate in 2010 and has made clear his intention to remain on the GOP ticket next year.
Neither Cawley or Corbett face an imminent primary challenge at this point in time, but that doesn’t rule out the possibility that a well-known Republican could mount a serious effort.
Here are the full results:
Who will Republicans nominate for Lieutenant Governor?
- Jim Cawley, incumbent Lt. Gov. (77%)
- Daryl Metcalfe, State Representative (14%)
- Someone else (6%)
- Sam Rohrer, former State Representative (3%)
