According to the Hazleton Standard-Speaker, Argall is exploring a bid after being pushed by some of his supporters.
“I’ve been asked to look at a candidacy for lieutenant governor by some of my traditional supporters. So we are exploring that possibility. If I choose to move ahead, I would have to circulate petitions for the primary next May,” Argall told the paper.
Earlier this year, Argall proposed a Constitutional amendment to change the way the Lieutenant Governor is selected. Argall’s plan would allow the Gubernatorial candidate to pick their own running mate, as long as the selection was approved by the candidate’s state committee. The earliest the amendment could be in effect would be for the 2022 elections according to Argall.
Argall said he will make his final decision in December after he sees who is entering the race for Governor.
Former state Rep. Gordon Denlinger (R-Lancaster) and former Revenue Secretary Dan Meuser are considering runs for Lieutenant Governor as well.
