PA-Gov: A New GOP Contender Emerges

paul-addisThe 2018 Republican Gubernatorial primary looks like it’s going to be crowded.

According to Dave Davies of WHYY, businessman Paul Addis is considering jumping into the race.

Addis is a 63 year-old former energy executive. Unlike State Senator and future candidate Scott Wagner, however, Addis is not a Trump acolyte.

In fact, Davies reveals that Addis wrote a name in rather than vote for Trump.

The potential candidate prefers to be seen as problem solver than in an ideological context.

“It’s not just ‘no taxes’ or ‘more taxes’, or ‘more spending, less spending’, it means how to do things in an innovative, new way, how to fix problems,” he stated.

Former Lieutenant Governor Jim Cawley won our reader poll of the possible 2018 GOP field earlier this month.
