State Speak­er Mike Turzai (R) “said he hopes to make a form­al an­nounce­ment of his can­did­acy in the … in the sum­mer or early fall.”

Turzai in a let­ter “in­formed state Re­pub­lic­an Party com­mit­tee mem­bers he is ser­i­ously con­sid­er­ing a run, and he de­tailed his ac­com­plish­ments in the House and as a fun­draiser help­ing oth­er Re­pub­lic­an can­did­ates around Pennsylvania. He also ap­peared to take aim at com­pet­it­ors for the GOP nom­in­a­tion, without nam­ing them.”
Turzai: “Un­like oth­ers, I have been car­ry­ing the Re­pub­lic­an agenda for more than a dec­ade. … I don’t need fo­cus groups to tell me where my prin­ciples are. And I’m not try­ing to buy this elec­tion with my own money. I have a his­tory of win­ning, not just elec­tions, but im­port­ant policy battles.” (AP)
