HARRISBURG (AP) — The highest-ranking member of the Pennsylvania Senate says he’s not going seek another term in the chamber in order to focus on his candidacy for the governorship. Senate President Pro Tempore Jake Corman took himself out of the running Monday for another term representing a State College area district. He had previously said that he would run for both the governor’s office and his Senate seat at the same time. The 57-year-old Corman is among a large cohort of Republicans seeking the gubernatorial nomination in the May 17 primary election. Corman was first elected in 1998. Second-term state Attorney General Josh Shapiro is the presumed Democratic nominee.
