The State Senator makes that clear in his latest email to supporters.
“There is good news and bad news,” he writes. “The good news is that Governor Wolf’s term ends in 32 months. The bad news is we still have 32 months of Governor Wolf and his partnership with the public sector unions.”
Of course, his math assumes that Governor Wolf doesn’t win a second term.
“We need a Republican Governor in Harrisburg to work with the growing Republican majority in the State House and Senate to reform Pennsylvania,” he continues. “Many people are asking if I am going to run for Governor of Pennsylvania, and my answer remains the same: I am considering it.”
It’s clear that Sen. Wagner wants people discussing his potential candidacy. It is also possible that he wants to throw his hat in first to head off possible primary challengers. Conventional wisdom would suggest that GOP hopefuls should wait until after this year’s election to make their plans known, but Scott Wagner has never been one to follow conventional wisdom.
Wagner’s 28th district includes parts of York County.
