Former District Judge Guy Reschenthaler has been elected State Senator of Pennsylvania’s 37th district.
A navy veteran elected to his judicial seat in 2013, Reschenthaler campaigned with the promise to oppose Gov. Wolf on issues from natural gas to public pensions.
While in office, Reschenthaler started self-defense and domestic violence awareness programs for women. He also held seminars on ways to protect senior citizens from fraud and held seminars at schools about the dangers of cyber bullying, underage drinking, and drugs.
He has been endorsed by LIFEPAC, Firearms Owners Against Crime, and ChamberPAC.
Reschenthaler prevailed over Democratic nominee Heather Arnet.
With the GOP victory, their majority in the State Senate expands to a 31-19 margin.
