GOVERNOR: Scott Wagner (R)
Scott Wagner is a native and long-time resident of York County Pennsylvania where he has enjoyed a very successful business career with his flagship enterprise being Penn Waste.  He served in the Senate of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania form 2014 until his resignation earlier this year in order to fully pursue running for Governor.  He is the only person in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to have won a seat in the state legislature on a write-in campaign.  Scott Wagner is a solid conservative and is determined to take on the problems facing Pennsylvanians.  He pays special attention to the opioid crisis which has hit the Commonwealth especially hard and he plans to hold drug companies (some of which donate to Governor Wolf’s campaign) accountable for the role they have played in this epidemic.
