In one of the hottest races in this year’s primary, former NFL player Jon Ritchie has conceded to Rep. Mike Regan in the 31st Senate District.
Regan had roughly 50 percent of the vote in the two county district at around 10:30 p.m. Ritchie conceded around that time.
The 31st District GOP primary was a crowded race with four men vying for the seat — Camp Hill dentist Brice Arndt, York County attorney Scott Harper, state Rep. Mike Regan, R-Carroll Township, and former NFL player and sports analyst Jon Ritchie.
The seat, which is currently held by Sen. Pat Vance, R-Cumberland County, was declared an open race by the Cumberland County GOP in January. The district covers parts of Cumberland and York counties.
And unless a write-in or third party candidate decides to run, the primary will likely decide who will win the seat.
