(Harrisburg) -- A fourth Republican is throwing a hat into the ring to run for lieutenant governor.

Joe Gale, a Montgomery County Commissioner, says he's running for the party's nomination.

The 28-year-old joins a field that includes former state Representative Gordon Denlinger of Lancaster County, suburban Philadelphia real estate investor Jeffrey Bartos and Otto Voit, a Berks County businessman who ran for state treasurer in 2016.

March 6th is the deadline for major party candidates to file paperwork to get on the May 15 primary election ballot.

Five Democrats have lined up to contest the re-election bid of Lt. Gov. Mike Stack in the party's primary.
