(Jacobus) -- A longtime member of the state House wants to run for the midstate's newly-vacant seat in the Senate.

York County Republican Ron Miller has announced his candidacy for both the March 18th Special Election and May Primary Election in the 28th Senatorial District.

Miller, who chairs the House Environmental Resources and Energy Committee, was first elected to the House in 1998.

Republican Senator Mike Waugh, who had represented the 28th district since 1999, resigned this week to head the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex and Expo Center in Harrisburg.

Last August, Waugh announced he would not be seeking reelection this year. Since then, several other Republicans have declared their candidacy in the Primary Election.

The York County Republican Committee will be tasked with choosing a candidate for the Special Election.

The 28th district has been represented by a Republican for nearly 20 years.
