>>Sen. Chris Gebhard May Be Running For Lancaster, Berks Counties
(Harrisburg, PA) -- Senator Chris Gebhard, a republican who won a state Senate seat in a special election last year, could soon become a lawmaker for Berks and Lancaster Counties. Gebhard has announced plans to run again for a full term in office. His 48th district currently covers Lebanon County and parts of York and Dauphin counties. Under a redistricting plan announced February 4th by the state Legislative Reapportionment Commission, the 48th district will include parts of Berks and Lancaster counties and all of Lebanon county. No candidates have come forward to date to oppose Gebhard in either the Republican primary in May or the general election in November. There is also still a possibility that the redistricting plan will be appealed and changed before the election.
