Mango To Announce Bid for Governor

Mango for Gov LogoAllegheny County businessman Paul Mango is making it official, he will be running for Governor in 2018.  Mango will make his announcement the day after the primary.  

Mango will make the announcement at the Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall & Museum in Pittsburgh on May 17th.  The doors to the announcement will open at 6:30 and the event will start at 7:30.  

“Paul will be making a big announcement about his future and the future of Pennsylvania,” John Brabender, a strategist associated with the Mango campaign told PoliticsPA about the event.

Mango told GOP leaders he would be running for Governor in late March.  At the time, he told leaders he would be waiting until after the primary this year to make an announcement.  

Mango has also launched a website  

“Now Paul Mango wants to take his middle-class values, his military training, business education, and decades of experience solving some of the toughest business problems at America’s most admired companies, to fix Pennsylvania’s stalled economy, underperforming schools, out-of-control spending and taxation, heroin and opioid epidemic, and end the presence of sanctuary cities to make Pennsylvania work again…for all our families,” Mango’s website says.  

State Senator Scott Wagner has already announced his bid for Governor.  House Speaker Mike Turzai (R-Allegheny) is exploring a bid for Governor.  Former Lieutenant Governor Jim Cawley, Congressman Mike Kelly (R-Butler), and state House Majority Leader Dave Reed (R-Indiana) are also rumored to be weighing a bid for Governor.

  1. @Chuckie. Quite right. His was a forlorn hope until Wagner handed it to him. Or should we say, grabbed it for him.

  2. If he’s eyetalian, maybe we can do some business with him…unless he’s another camera shy republican with grabby hands, which is okay with La Familia, so long as it’s money and we get our cut.
