My outlook: I grew up in PA and consider myself a centrist, I personally disapprove of the current governor but Scott Wagner is an embarrassing excuse to verse him.

Republicans generally are pretty dumb when it comes to picking someone in states where their message doesnt resonate, I'm not a moderate by any means but Charlie Baker and Chris Sununu are proof that Republicans can pick someone to fit the political climate, sadly, they just don't bother.

I look forward to it. I'll be living in Philadelphia. I'm definitely voting for whoever the Democratic candidate will be. I think one of your choices should be "Donald Trump," since he's always the biggest news and you have some Republicans that don't like him very much. Far-Left to Centrist would be opposed at different levels. Center-right would support him about as much as Collins, Graham, and McCain support him. Right would be full support. Far-right would be supportive, but wish he were more conservative.

In this game, generally Trump comes out as centre right due to his views on abortion, same sex marriage and free trade. I feel like centre-right would support him more as the reason he won Pennslyvania was centre/centre-right independents/democrats voting for him.

I think he's become more conservative as president, which can be shown by the fact that the moderate Republicans oppose him (Kasich, Collins, Murkowski, Graham, McCain) and the conservative Republicans have been much more supportive.

Welcome to PA! and thank you for the suggestion. I wont be voting for a Republican unless a strong moderate is put up. I am actually campaigning for Bob Casey Sr., But I personally do not like Tom Wolf, or what he has done for the state. I'll be running for my cities Commissioner position come next year. 23 may sound young but I've met with Casey, and many PA State Rep. and Senators. Just for tips and funding advice. Next year will be the start to my political career,

These moderate Republicans opposed him during the 2016 race too for things like his immigration policy and his trade policy, immigration was right wing, his trade policy was left.

They were always against him for his foreign policy like with his stances on NATO.

Healthcare is hilarious really, I couldn't imagine McCain being any better, he'd probably put bombing people in Syria over the lives of domestic citizens.

Yeah, McCain and Graham are really the last old style Republicans (neocons) in he Senate. I actually think McCain and Graham would work with Democrats on Healthcare reform in exchange for support in military/defense matters. In this sense, I think McCain and Graham would, at least incidentally, care more about domestic citizens than Trump or Cruz. I really think Trump could probably come up with a good healthcare plan if he was willing to promote a bipartisan plan, but I think he's so bent on undoing anything Obama did (in a way that doesn't make sense....it's almost pathological), that he sort of undermines himself, since Obama is popular and Trump is not. I don't think Cruz cares about domestic citizens because he doesn't believe the government should care.
