Scott Wagner Names Running-Mate In PA’s Gubernatorial Race

HARRISBURG (WSKG) — State Senator Scott Wagner is taking an unorthodox step in his campaign for governor.  The conservative York County Republican has named a running mate—real estate developer and political outsider Jeff Bartos. In some ways, the decision is only symbolic. Pennsylvania’s primary system requires candidates for lieutenant governor to campaign separately from gubernatorial hopefuls. The winners from each party are automatically paired together. Sometimes that leads to odd couplings, like current Governor Tom Wolf and Lieutenant Mike Stack, who are known to have a strained relationship.
