GOP governor candidates try to reach undecided voters

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

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

In the run-up to the 2018 gubernatorial primary, he earned the state Republican party's endorsement and spent $10 million of his own money on the campaign.

Wagner beat out opponents Paul Mango and Laura Ellsworth, both from Allegheny County, following a hard-fought primary campaign that lasted for well over a year.

Rick Poole, of York, said he thinks that Wagner's work ethic is what sets him apart. "He came to Juniata County twice", Harris said.

"The day I'm sworn in as the new governor and they give me the keys to the Governor's office, I'm ready to go", said Wagner. Wolf is soft-spoken and chooses his words carefully. Wolf, 69, has a bachelor's degree from Dartmouth College and a Ph.D. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. But back in 2014, I put everything I had into what many said was a insane, "un-winnable" write-in campaign for the state senate.

Wolf likely will attack Wagner as posing a danger to programs for children, schools and seniors, while Wagner likely will attack Wolf as a serial tax hiker, an out-of-touch elitist and a lousy leader.

"I would cut the "back-office, amusing business" that goes on financially", she said.

"He's tenacious. He's got a head for details and he's never going to be out-worked", Poole said.


Pennsylvania's primary elections are this coming Tuesday, and there's a lot to pay attention to.

Scott Wagner may be the frontrunner in our poll, but he says he's acting like the underdog.

The primary also features a weirdly-competitive democratic primary for lieutenant governor, with a truly colorful cast of characters involved.

Casey, 58, who was unopposed for the Democratic nomination, has opposed Trump's Supreme Court pick, many of his highest-profile nominees and the GOP tax-cutting law while emerging as an ardent Trump critic.

Fetterman had made a failed bid in 2016 for the U.S. Senate.

Stack, a former Philadelphia state senator, has had a chilly relationship with Wolf in their first term together.

Wolf previous year ordered an investigation into the treatment of state employees by Stack and his wife and stripped Stack of state police protection.
