JOHNSTOWN, Pa. (AP) - An assistant county prosecutor and township supervisor in western Pennsylvania says he’s running for the state Senate.

Forty-year-old Wayne Langerholc Jr., of Richland Township, announced he’s running for the Republican nomination for the 35th District seat.

Langerholc is not only a supervisor of the township near Johnstown, he’s an assistant district attorney in Cambria County.

Langerholc has specialized in drug prosecutions and says he hopes to fight drugs and crime with legislation, too.

The seat represents Bedford and Cambria counties, and most of Clearfield county.

State Sen. John Wozniak, the Democrat incumbent, hasn’t announced whether he’ll seek re-election next year.

Langerholc lives with his fiancee’ and three daughters in the township about 60 miles east of Pittsburgh.
