The Luzerne County Republican Committee’s Executive Committee unanimously voted to endorse Scott Wagner for Governor and Jeff Bartos for Lieutenant Governor.

“The Luzerne County Republican Party is proud to be the first county party to endorse Scott Wagner and Jeff Bartos,” said county Chairman Ron Ferrance following the vote to endorse. “Tom Wolf has been a complete disaster for Pennsylvania. Scott Wagner as Governor and Jeff Bartos as Lieutenant Governor are the right team at the right time to get Pennsylvania back on track.”

Wagner said that he was honored to have the Luzerne County GOP’s endorsement adding, “The members of the Republican Party recognize that in order for Pennsylvania to win, we need to put leaders in office that know how to win. Jeff Bartos and I are the only candidates in this race who will challenge the status quo and turn Pennsylvania around by creating jobs, fixing our education system and restoring government to the citizens of our commonwealth.”

“I am honored to receive the support of the Luzerne GOP so shortly after announcing that Scott and I will be running as a team,” Bartos said of the endorsement. “The energy and leadership of the county parties will be the fuel that feeds the engine of our campaign, and Luzerne County is critical to winning Pennsylvania. Indeed, as Luzerne County goes, so goes Pennsylvania and, as we saw in 2016, so goes the nation.”
