Scott Wagner is running for Governor in 2018.
Well, it would be more accurate to say that the State Senator keeps inching closer to an announcement.
“If you’re gonna ask me today, this is not a formal announcement, I intend to run for Governor,” Wagner told Matt Maisel of Fox 43. “And I will be most likely formally announcing right after the first of the year.”

He also spoke to Charles Thompson of the Patriot-News.
“For where we are in Pennsylvania and what we need, I’m the most qualified person, and I’m there to get the job done,” Wagner told Thompson.
Wagner has been teasing a run for some time, going as far as to say that he was “considering” it back in June.
Such a battle would pit two York County natives against each other.
There could be concerns that the State Senator is too conservative and too iconoclastic compared to other leading contenders, but that may not be a problem in a party now headed by Donald Trump.
