Scarnati Says "No Tax Increase Budget Is First Priority"

Scarnati: Balanced Budget,
Not Higher Office, is Top Priority

Although Pat Toomey and Peg Luksik have already announced their intentions to run in the Republican primary for Arlen Specter's senate seat, other names are still being mentioned.

One of those names is Senator Joe Scarnati.

"I think there's a huge field out there waiting to get in. There have been names mentioned – in and out – for some time, but I think this opens up a vast field for a Republican primary, " he said Tuesday. "I think it will be interesting to see who steps up to the plate."

Scarnati says his first priority right now is producing a balanced budget with no tax increase and he won't be thinking about running for US Senate – or governor – until after the budget is passed.
