I want to personally invite you to a special Townhall onÂ Tuesday, November 17 at theÂ Spring Township Fire Department, 2301 Monroe Avenue in West Lawn, PA.Â Iâ€™m organizing this forum to announce the decision on the race for governor, and begin a statewide conversation about the challenges and real opportunities facing Pennsylvania.
I’m going to guess that’s going to be an announcement that he’s running. I like Representative Rohrer, but as I’ve said, it’s without historical precedent for a state rep to make the leap to Governor. He’s a champion of limited government, and for that I admire him, but he’s going up against Attorney General Tom Corbett, who’s a proven winner in a statewide race, and Jim Gerlach, who is a U.S. Congressman, and has proven repeatedly he can win very tough elections in a swing district.
I’d much rather support Sam Rohrer for a higher office like State Senator, Auditor General, or some other state wide office. I suspect Rep. Rohrer is just trying to get his name out there, and get some of his ideas into the debate. That’s good. I will lend support to his candidacy. But it’s quite a long shot, and at the end of the day we can’t afford another 8 years of the same kind of things we’ve seen with Governor Ed.
