PA One Step Closer to Electing Governor & Lieutenant Governor


PENNSYLVANIA - PA is one step closer to electing a governor and lieutenant governor.

Current Governor, Tom Corbett automatically goes to the November election as the republican side was uncontested in Tuesday's primary.

On the democratic side, six candidates faced off.  As the votes stand now, millionaire businessman Tom Wolf is the unofficial winner.  He easily came out on top with nearly 60% of votes.  Robert McCord earned about 17-percent of votes. Kate McGinty and Allyson Schwartz had about 10-percent each.  The two other candidates didn't register on primary night with any votes.

Wolf made his acceptance speech before 10pm from a baseball field in York.  He touched on how the current administration has run the state for the past four years and that he's ready to do things differently.  Specifically, he said he wants to make education and jobs top priorities.
