Making official what many expected, York County State Sen. Scott Wagner is planning to announce this week that he's running for governor of Pennsylvania in 2018.
The business owner and elected official said he plans to make six campaign stops across the state this Wednesday and Thursday to make the announcement, according to a press release from Wagner’s representatives.
The first appearance will be at the business he owns, Penn Waste Inc. in Manchester Township.
