With early polling suggesting that state Sen. Scott Wagner (R-York) leading the GOP gubernatorial contest and businessman Jeff Bartos (R) leaving the US Senate campaign hoping to join Wagner has his Lt. Governor running mate, a new Republican gubernatorial candidate is emerging. State House Speaker Mike Turzai (R-McCandless Township) says he will now become a gubernatorial candidate and compete for the nomination. Businessman Paul Mango, who has just recently run a wave of television advertising, is also waging an active campaign. The eventual Republican nominee will challenge first-term Gov. Tom Wolf (D) next November.
