Winter State Committee meeting recap

The Winter meeting of the Republican State Committee was held in Harrisburg, PA on January 30-31st.

The main item of business during the general meeting of the Party on Saturday was voting on endorsements for the upcoming judicial elections this year.  The first vote was on whether or not to endorse.  The endorsement vote passed by a vote of 238 to 90.  Next, a roll call vote was held on the endorsement of candidates for Supreme Court.  The results of the vote were as follows:
Mike George, 291 votes
Judy Olson, 274
Anne Covey, 258
Cheryl Allen, 71
Rebecca Warren, 39

Your State Committee members all supported Judy Olson, Anne Covey, and Mike George.  The next endorsement vote was for Superior Court.  Emil Giordano received the endorsement with 242 votes to Paul Panepinto's 86 votes.  The only candidate to seek endorsement for Commonwealth Court was Paul Lalley.  We are looking forward working hard to elect Republican candidates to these offices this fall.  More information about these candidates is available online at
