Republican Governor Candidates comment on last push before the polls
Three GOP candidates for governor are facing off to see who will take on Tom Wolf in November.
According to the latest ABC27, Susquehanna Polling Research Poll, Ellsworth has her work cut out for her, coming in a distant third place to Scott Wagner and Paul Mango.
Wagner's victory caps a personal spending spree of more than $10 million that helped make him the front-runner and the GOP's endorsed candidate.
Laura Ellsworth - a commercial litigation attorney and former chairwoman of the Greater Pittsburgh Chamber of Commerce - stayed out of the fray and made that choice part of her campaign, the station noted. "I would convene the county commissioners, both democrats and republicans, and say "let's roll up our sleeves" and let's establish a smaller budget based on the priorities of the people in your counties, not based on the special interest of those in Harrisburg". Wolf is soft-spoken and chooses his words carefully. He singles out public-sector labor unions as a particular target of his vitriol and has inspired comparisons to President Donald Trump. He has compiled one of the Senate's most conservative voting records.
Primary night also gave Wagner and Wolf their running mates. Scott Wagner for governor.
Voters throughout the region hit the polls on Primary Day in Pennsylvania as matchups are now being decided for the midterm elections in November.
John Fetterman won the five-way Democratic Party primary race for lieutenant governor Tuesday, beating incumbent Mike Stack.
Pennsylvania's lieutenant governor has become the first holder of the office to lose in a primary election. Stack faced an uphill battle for re-election following a scandal-plagued first term and occasionally butted heads with Wolf.
Wolf past year ordered an investigation into the treatment of state employees by Stack and his wife and stripped Stack of state police protection.
