State Senator Scott Wagner has already revealed that he will kick off his campaign tomorrow. Now, another contender is emerging.
According to Thomas Fitzgerald of the Inquirer, Allegheny County businessman Paul Mango is considering throwing his hat into the ring.
Mango is a senior partner for McKinsey & Company. He served as a Captain in the U.S. Army and a paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne Division from 1981 to 1986. Mango graduated from West Point and received an MBA from Harvard University in 1988.
Fitzgerald reports that Mango is bringing on GOP consultants John Brabender and David Urban in anticipation of a possible run.
Meanwhile, there are several other Republicans officials who may give it go. The formation of the GOP Gubernatorial primary field is set to be the biggest story of 2017 in PA politics.
