Dr. Nche Zama, an acclaimed cardiothoracic surgeon who immigrated to the United States from Cameroon at the age of 14, jumped into the gubernatorial race as a Republican candidate for Governor in 2022. "PA needs a Heart Surgeon," said Dr. Zama to an enthusiastic packed house of Elk County Republicans on Tuesday evening. Several standing ovations punctuated his speech with the assembled Republicans. "I'm the Democratic Party's worst nightmare," said Zama in a portion of his speech. A full story will appear in the Thursday Ridgway Record.
