HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - A Republican state senator who wants to challenge Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf’s re-election bid is reporting that he loaned his campaign $4 million.

Scott Wagner’s campaign on Tuesday reported almost $4.3 million in his campaign account as of Dec. 31. That includes $175,000 in interest and $90,000 from his Senate campaign account.

Wagner and Wolf are both from York County in southcentral Pennsylvania. Wagner owns the $65 million municipal waste hauler Penn Waste.

Wolf, a Democrat, hadn’t filed a campaign finance report for 2016 as of Tuesday afternoon. Tuesday was the state’s deadline to file.

Wolf’s campaign spent more than $32 million on the 2014 contest. His office says he’s paid off a $4.45 million personal loan he took out to help finance that campaign. The 3.18 percent term note was due Dec. 31.
