Pennsylvania Governor Race: Corman Quits, Endorses Barletta
Pennsylvania Senate President Pro Tempore Jake Corman has announced that he is dropping out of the Republican primary race for governor. Corman made the announcement Thursday, May 12, during a joint press conference with gubernatorial candidate Lou Barletta at the Pennsylvania Manufacturers Association in Harrisburg. Corman used that time to endorse Barletta.
Corman said it is time to do what is right for the Republican Party and get behind one candidate who can win in the general election. He urged other candidates to do the same for the good of the party.

In April, Corman prepared papers to withdraw from the race but former President Donald Trump encouraged him to stay in the race, so he did. Trump has not made an endorsement in this race.
