“I have decided to focus on the possibility of securing the Republican nomination for US Senate. The current incumbent, Senator Casey, lacks vision and workable strategies, which is the opposite of what America and Pennsylvania need,” Addis said in an email.
“I will make a final decision in the near future about my intentions.”
Update: Addis was considering a run for either Governor or Senate, but has decided to focus on the Senate.
Addis is a former energy executive from Delaware County.
State Representative Rick Saccone (R-Allegheny) and Jim Christiana (R-Beaver), and RNC Delegate Andrew Schektor have all announced bids for Senate.
