Wolf Launches New Ad Touting Reforms the Day After Primary

PA-Gov: Gubernatorial primary marked by mudslinging: 'When I get punched in the mouth, I punch back'

3 Candidates Vie For Republican Gubernatorial Nomination

After building a fortune as a waste-hauling and trucking mogul, Wagner became the first write-in candidate to win a state Senate seat in 2014.

On the Democratic side, Wolf will run alongside John Fetterman, the Braddock, Allegheny County, mayor who pulled off the unthinkable by knocking off Lt. Gov. Mike Stack.

With 91 percent of the state's precincts reporting, Wagner, a York County state senator and businessman, captured 46 percent of the vote, according to unofficial state totals. Mr. Borick said Mr. Wagner should have no trouble accessing large sums for the general election.

Wagner pledged to work to improve the state's business climate and press for better schools, but his supporters most enthusiastically responded to his pledge to get rid of school property taxes.

Wagner had the backing of the Pa.

"The people will have a clear choice this fall: a bold disrupter who isn't afraid to tell you like it is or a timid leader who is more interested in getting re-elected than getting things done", Mr. Wagner said in his prepared remarks.

Well, Wagner had me four-years ago, when, as a newly-elected state Senator, he declared, "I'm gonna be sitting in the back of the room with a baseball bat".

In the November 6 election, Wagner will run on the GOP ticket with Jeff Bartos, who won a four-way primary for lieutenant governor, unofficial results show. Mr. Hanna said the Democratic party stands for issues like good jobs, a higher minimum wage and access to good health care.

"Ellsworth is not likely to win", Madonna said.

Wolf's polling numbers suggest he is in a comfortable spot to seek re-election, political scientists say, and he has worked to show that he can deftly operate the levers of government despite butting heads inside the state Capitol with huge Republican legislative majorities.

Paul Mango says, "Our polls tell us something different".

Wolf campaign manager Jeff Sheridan released a statement last night denouncing Wagner.

Mr. Wagner shrugged off the attacks as signs of political desperation.

After professing to his core values of faith, family and service to others, Mango launched one of the meanest, most vicious attack campaigns in Pennsylvania history. "I'm not wounded at all", he said in a May 4 interview, adding that he thought voters were "seeing through" the negative ads. Poole, said he'd been a business partner with Wagner in the past. "We all need to come together to do that".
