Wagner bested opponents Paul Mango and Laura Ellsworth.

A month ahead of the election, Republican Party chairman Val DiGiorgio criticized Mango for running ads criticizing Wagner.

It's this kind of tough, no-nonsense talk that resonated among rank and file Republican voters and put Wagner over the top.

Scott Wagner may be the frontrunner in our poll, but he says he's acting like the underdog. "That's the first thing I would do".

Knowing the importance of social conservatives to winning a primary election in Pennsylvania, Mango morphed into a Santorum-esque family-values cultural warrior from the 90s. "You know, it's a snake pit". Today it's time for us to stand up for family - and look out for each other. Bartos was Wagner's preferred candidate. "Wagner was even caught conspiring with House Republican leadership to kill a severance tax to hurt Governor Wolf's re-election and reports show that big oil and gas has spent over $60 million dollars on lobbying and political donations to avoid paying a commonsense severance tax".

Also, he loves President Trump. "We all need to come together to do that".

Wagner is a rags-to-riches millionaire. "I grew up on a farm". The current one, Penn Waste, has multiple municipal contracts in central Pennsylvania. Republican Party and was the predicted favorite after launching his campaign in January 2017.

John Fetterman won the five-way Democratic Party primary race for lieutenant governor Tuesday, beating incumbent Mike Stack.

During the primary, Wagner spent almost $12.1 million in TV ads, campaign staff and in-kind donations, including helicopter ferries, from his businesses, Department of State records show.

Mango, a former health care systems consultant, fell short despite seizing the mantle of conservatism and spending $7 million of his own on the campaign.

The governor leads a unified Democratic Party into the fall with midterm political winds at his back. Mango also pushed social conservative issues while using negative ads to knock the conservative bona fides of Wagner.

Mr. Borick said Mr. Wagner is likely to get a reprieve but predicted similar attacks during the general election could expose the "wound" as the November election draws nearer. It used cartoon imagery to call Wagner a "a slumlord" over landlord-tenant lawsuits, a toxic polluter over environmental citations at his trash company and a shady bail bondsman, mong other claims.
