PENNSYLVANIA PRIMARY Waste-hauling millionaire is GOP pick to battle Wolf

State senator and waste-hauling millionaire Scott Wagner won Tuesday's three-way Republican primary contest to challenge Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf, capping a personal spending spree that helped make Wagner the front-runner and the GOP's endorsed candidate.

Along the way, Wagner pumped more than $10 million of his own cash into his campaign, and he spread hundreds of thousands more around the state since previous year to boost GOP committees and candidates. Mango, a U.S. Army veteran from Pittsburgh who works for a business leadership and professional advisory firm, was a first-time candidate.

Stack was fighting for another term in office after a first term in which he had a chilly relationship with Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf.

Voters in Pennsylvania have chosen their candidates in the race for lieutenant governor this fall.

Fetterman won the unusually contentious five-way election with about 38 percent of the vote.

The Braddock, Pa. mayor, who ran unsuccessfully for the U.S. Senate in 2016, had 37.5 percent of the vote, according to unofficial tallies.

U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta had paid little attention to his Republican rival, state Rep. Jim Christiana, during the primary campaign.
