PITTSBURGH (AP) Allegheny County's Republican Party chairman has resigned just days after the party failed to field candidates in several high-profile county races. Robert Glancy announced his resignation Thursday. Glancy is president of the R.A. Glancy & Sons construction company and was elected party chair in June 2004.
The county offered no candidates for county executive, county controller, district attorney, treasurer or for five County Council seats.
Mark DeSantis ran one of the most aggressive mayoral campaigns by a Republican in recent memory, but still lost to incumbent Democrat Luke Ravenstahl who got 64 percent of the vote.
