McSwain made the announcement on Monday, Sept. 13, and now joins a field of at least eight Republicans hoping for the nomination to replace Governor Tom Wolf, who is term-limited.

Currently residing in Chest County, McSwain is also a former U.S. Attorney for eastern Pennsylvania, including Philadelphia.

As of Tuesday, Sept. 14, there are still no democrats who have entered the race, though Attorney General Josh Shapiro is expected to do so.
