Last Wednesday evening, I was honored to join the race for Governor of Pennsylvania. It was wonderful to be joined by my family, friends, and supporters at the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall and Museum in Pittsburgh, PA as I declared my candidacy to be the next Governor of Pennsylvania.
From there, I embarked on an introductory tour of the Commonwealth which took me to Scranton, Mechanicsburg, and Philadelphia. And the response has been overwhelming.
"... (Mango's) resumé is jacked: West Point, Army Ranger, Harvard MBA..."

"GOP Candidate For Governor: Thomas The Tax Engine Wolf Is Driving Away Business"
- Chris Stigall, CBS Philadelphia
"Republican candidate for governor Paul Mango, like the man he hopes to replace, is a political unknown who comes from the business world. And that, he said, is about all he shares with Gov. Wolf."
- Tom Fitzgerald, The Philadelphia Inquirer
"This is Mango's first foray into elected politics, and he blames politicians in Harrisburg for the problems facing the state. He said he would be a "conservative leader" in his approach to Pennsylvania government... Mango is running as a political outsider in a field that could be dominated by elected officials."
- Kevin Zwick, Pittsburgh Tribune Review
"Former business consultant Paul Mango vowed Thursday to oppose taxing extraction of the state's abundant natural gas fields if he's elected governor, but promised gas-industry-spurred jobs that keep children from moving to other states... He also promised to harness Pennsylvania's energy and technology sectors and access to markets to produce "a global leader in manufacturing" and "the Saudi Arabia of energy exports."
