Carrie Lewis DelRosso for Lieutenant Governor – For Information Only

Carrie Lewis DelRosso, the freshman state lawmaker from Oakmont, decided to tack from her House position and set her sights on the office of Lieutenant Governor.

DelRosso (R-Allegheny/Westmoreland), who stunned the western part of the Commonwealth when she defeated Frank Dermody in 2020, represents the 33rd House District. However, the Legislative Reapportionment Commission’s new maps have drawn her out of that district and into a race in the 32nd against Democrat Tony DeLuca. DeLuca has held that seat since the early 1980s.

“As part of the statewide ticket, my every thought will be how I can help our nominee for governor defeat [Josh] Shapiro and bring conservative leadership back to the executive office,” she said in a statement.

DelRosso describes herself as a pro-life, Second Amendment advocate and a staunch opponent of increased state taxes and a supporter of term limits.

Lieutenant governors in Pennsylvania are nominated separately in the primary. They then join the ticket of whoever wins their party’s nomination for governor in the general election.

She enters a crowded field with 11 other candidates in the chase for the Republican nomination
