Berks County lawmaker Sam Rohrer has announced his campaign for the Republican Gubernatorial nomination. Rohrer, a ninth term lawmaker, is founding his campaign message on lowering taxes and resisting an "overbearing government." Rohrer would also like to change the way school systems are funded and increase performance by expanding school choice and empowering parents. The 54 year old announced his campaign during what he called a "Pennsylvania Town hall." Rohrer is running against Attorney General Tom Corbett and the U.S. Rep. Jim Gerlach in the Republican primary.
