02.13.20 | Bob Price

The Jefferson County Republican is stepping down after 14 years of steering the GOP in Harrisburg.

Michael Geer with the Pennsylvania Family Institute says Scarnati was reliable in helping pass legislation on traditional marriage and pro-life.

Scarnati's departure comes just 2 weeks after House Speaker Mike Turzai announced his resignation. Together, they were two of the most influential conservative voices in Pennsylvania politics.

Scarnati will remain on the job 'til the legislative session ends on November 30th.
