Dillsburg-area Senate seat debates scheduled

Greg Gross

With less than two weeks before the Pennsylvania primary,  a series of debates have been announced for the hotly contested Dillsburg-area state Senate seat.

Running for the Senate seat are state Rep. Mike Reganex-NFLer Jon RitchieCamp Hill-area dentist Brice Arndt and Scott Harper, an attorney from Washington Township. The four Republicans are vying to fill retiring Sen. Pat Vance's seat.

The candidates are expected to meet face-to-face in four debates between Thursday and the April 26 primary.

Here's a look at when and where debates the debates will be held:

The 31st Senate District includes an area that stretches from Fairview Township in the north to Jackson Township in the south as well as a large area of Cumberland County.

No Democrats are on the primary ballot, so the race will be decided in the GOP primary unless someone launches a write-in campaign or a third-party candidate runs. Third-party candidates have until August to file nomination papers.
