BETHEL PARK — Republican conferees in the 37th Senatorial District met at the Crowne Plaza Pittsburgh South this morning and selected Guy Reschenthaler as their nominee in the upcoming Special Election to take place on November 3rd.
“I congratulate Guy Reschenthaler on his selection as our Party’s candidate in the 37th Senatorial District Special Election,” said Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Rob Gleason. “At a time when Governor Tom Wolf and Harrisburg Democrats want to drastically raise taxes on Pennsylvania families, the people of the 37th Senatorial District deserve a strong voice who is ready to stand up for them in Harrisburg. Guy Reschenthaler believes in growing our economy instead of the size of our government, and our Party looks forward to working hard to elect Guy Reschenthaler in November.”
Due to the fact that this Senatorial District is made up of more than one county, the Rules and Bylaws of the Republican Party of Pennsylvania dictate that the PA GOP preside over a conferee meeting to select a Republican nominee. State Senator Matt Smith, who represented the 37th Senatorial District, resigned his seat on June 21, 2015.
