A major shakeup among the GOP after Republican candidate for Governor Jake Corman announced he’s dropping out of the race to endorse challenger Lou Barletta.
Senator Jake Corman pulling out of the race for Governor Thursday…
Endorsing former Congressman Lou Barletta.
Corman says he’s putting his party first by bringing it together behind one candidate, he believes, can beat Democrat Josh Shapiro come Fall.
The move comes as Senator Doug Mastriano pulls away from the pack in polls, taking the lead days before the May 17th election.
With five days until election day some say it’s too late.
“This is something that Jake Corman and half of the field should have done six weeks ago”
Come Tuesday voters will see 9 names on the Republican side of the ballot for Governor.
“The best thing that the Democrats can get out of this primary is that we come out of this fractured”
“The right thing is to coalesce as it should have probably happened maybe a little sooner but nevertheless there’s still time”
