State Sen. Bob Regola's Full Statement


"After much consideration, I have decided to not be a candidate for reelection to the Pennsylvania Senate.

This has been one of the most difficult decisions I have ever faced because of my desire to see the cause of conservative reform advance in Harrisburg and because of my fondness of serving the people of the 39th District.

For the past four years I have fought to reform our government, lower taxes, bring home Westmoreland County's fair share from Harrisburg , and stand up for our conservative values. I am proud of my record of the last four years and look forward to serving out my term and continuing to work on these priorities. I want to thank the voters for the trust they placed in me.

Despite my belief that I would win re-election, I am unwilling to put my family, friends and supporters through the type of negative campaign that my opponent would likely conduct. Even though the jury acquitted me of these charges in less than 3 hours, my political opponents and some of the news media would likely spend the next several months vilifying me further. As one of the jurors has said, this was a political witch hunt, and I did not want to put my family through additional anguish.
