Wagner To Face Wolf In November; Stack Fails In Bid For Reelection As Lieutenant Governor

May 16, 2018

State Senator Scott Wagner has won a three-way race in the Republican primary to square off against incumbent Democrat Tom Wolf in this November’s Pennsylvania gubernatorial race.

In his victory speech on Tuesday night, Wagner vowed to get things done in Harrisburg.

Wolf will have a different running mate for Lieutenant Governor this year.  For the first time since the post of Lieutenant Governor was made an electable position, Mike Stack was tossed out by voters, finishing well back in a five-way battle in the Democratic primary.  Stack’s term had been filled with controversy and a public feud with Wolf.  The nomination went to Braddock Mayor John Fetterman, an unconventional politician who is expected to bring some life to Harrisburg, should he be elected.

Republican Congressman Lou Barletta will face incumbent Bob Casey in Pennsylvania’s critical United States Senate election in November.  Barletta is a close ally of President Donald Trump, while Casey may be one of the most outspoken members of the Senate against the President.

Incumbent Congressman Glenn Thompson, who was running unopposed in what is now the 15th District, will have a challenge in November.  Indiana University of Pennsylvania professor Susan Boser won the Democratic nod for the post Tuesday.  Boser had been running in the 9th District until the remapping of Pennsylvania’s Congressional districts by the state Supreme Court earlier this year.

And, incumbent Republican Lee James will be challenged by Democrat John Kluck for James’ 64th District seat in the House of Representatives.  Both men are from Oil City, and both ran unopposed in the primaries.
