“I’m in! I am running for Lt. Governor for one simple reason: Pennsylvania is losing right now,” Voit wrote on his Facebook page.
Voit ran for Treasurer in 2016 before losing in the general election to Democrat Joe Torsella.
During the 2016 campaign, Voit spoke often at events for now-President Trump and Vice President Pence in Pennsylvania.
“Our working families are working harder and earning less, our small businesses are struggling, and our students are buried in debt. It doesn’t have to be this way,” Voit said.
Voit joins Jeff Bartos and former state Rep. Gordon Denlinger (R-Lancaster) in the race.
Update: PoliticsPA talked with Voit about his run for Lieutenant Governor today.
“I am running because I don’t have $10 million in the bank to run for Governor. I want to bring leadership to Pennsylvania where none currently exists,” Voit said.
“I have traveled all 67 counties and met terrific people, and all of them have said they want a government that works, is lean, and is efficient.”
