Voters hand GOP gubernatorial nomination to Scott Wagner

"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". "I want it because I'm a down to earth guy, and I'm a results guy". "I grew up on a farm. Governor Wolf grew up in an affluent family". Scott Wagner for governor.

In fact, as Wagner made clear in his acceptance speech, taxes-particularly property taxes that go toward schools-promise to be one of the key issues in the race. Scott Wagner secured his party's nomination for a spot on the ballot in November.

Wagner, like Mango and Ellsworth, going all across the Commonwealth Monday, not taking any vote for granted.

All three of the candidates' favorability ratings are above water, with Wagner having the most favorable rating.

As the race ended, he finally got it.

Wagner defeated first-time candidates Paul Mango and Laura Ellsworth, surviving weeks of Mango's sharp-elbowed attack ads that painted Wagner as sleazy and greedy. "You know, it's a snake pit".

Wagner is brash - "I am going to be the next governor, take that to the bank", he said a year ago - and has a penchant for off-the-cuff speaking that makes him a magnet for controversy.

"I'm going to be a governor who leads the charge".

Mango echoed the sentiment, telling his supporters, "We must all remain focused on the most important goal, which is to defeat Governor Tom Wolf".

Wagner's lieutenant governor candidate is Montgomery County real estate developer Jeff Bartos, who had already been unofficially running alongside the senator.

Wolf was uncontested in the primary, while Fetterman won the nomination among a field of five candidates.

The Braddock mayor's victory means he will run on a ticket with Gov. Tom Wolf in the fall.
