Waste-hauling millionaire Wagner is GOP pick to challenge Wolf

Waste-hauling millionaire Wagner is GOP pick to challenge Wolf

With just hours before polls opened for Pennsylvania's primary election, the three Republican candidates for governor hit the road on Monday.

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.

A March poll from the American Principles Project found that Wagner led in the race against Mango.

He also selected Berks County attorney Jeff Bartos as his informal running mate.

"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. "Then, we're going to Johnstown and then back to Pittsburgh", said Mango.

Wagner, like Mango and Ellsworth, is not taking any vote for granted. 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. I think what that shows is there's a large number of people who are looking for an alternative.

"We emerge from the primary stronger and are better prepared to meet the challenge we will face this fall".

"In the weeks and months to come, this campaign will move full speed ahead to spread Scott's blue collar, pro-paycheck message all across Pennsylvania, and we are confident we will defeat Tom Wolf in November", said Jason High, Wagner's campaign manager.

Braddock, Pa. Mayor John Fetterman defeated incumbent Democratic Lt. Gov. Mike Stack, the first time in modern history a sitting lieutenant governor has been defeated in a primary election.
