In a recent poll from Public Policy Polling, Republican voters in Pennsylvania said they would prefer “someone else” for the governorship by a margin of 49% to 37%.
The names Tom Smith and Bruce Castor were both floated as potential challengers for Governor Corbett in a primary race. This week, Smith’s 2012 campaign spokesperson said that the Senate hopeful “has no plans to run for governor.”
Montgomery County Commissioner Bruce Castor has been busy lately, meeting with conservatives in many parts of Pennsylvania and even launching a website. All signs indicate that he is serious about running against Corbett for the Republican nomination.
Who should the Republicans support for governor?
- Bruce Castor (44%)
- someone else (29%)
- Tom Corbett (28%)
