Harrisburg, PA – Pennsylvania House Speaker Mike Turzai’s plan to run for governor is gathering dust while he’s embroiled in an increasingly ugly budget stalemate that shows no signs of ending.

The Allegheny County Republican told party members and leaders in May he was seriously considering running.

But he’s kept a low profile for weeks now, and party officials, Republican activists and rival campaigns are wondering whether Turzai will still run against Wolf for governor.
