HARRISBURG (AP) – Another candidate is dropping out of the crowded field for the GOP nomination for governor of PA. Guy Ciarrocchi, who stepped down as President and CEO of the Chester County Chamber of Business and Industry to run, said that he is ending his campaign. The primary election is May 17. Candidates can begin circulating paperwork to gather the 2,000 voter signatures necessary to qualify for primary ballots across the state. Even with Ciarrocchi’s exit, the Republican primary field remains double-digits deep as GOP rivals vie for the nomination to take on the presumed Democrat nominee, state Attorney General Josh Shapiro, in November’s election.
