Waste-hauling millionaire Wagner GOP pick to challenge Gov. Tom Wolf

Waste-hauling millionaire Wagner GOP pick to challenge Gov. Tom Wolf

"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".

"Pennsylvania has everything it needs to be the number one place to live and work in this country", said Republican candidate Laura Ellsworth. Pittsburgh attorney Laura Ellsworth rounds out the leading candidates.

Wagner, like Mango and Ellsworth, is not taking any vote for granted. Mango's biggest margin of victory coming from Bucks and Allegheny counties.

Barletta was a Trump supporter before the 2016 presidential nomination was settled. After a hard race, the Republican candidate failed to end the night with a ticket to the race for governor this fall. We have a governor [Tom Wolf] who's not providing leadership.

Wagner is president and owner of York-based Penn Waste, Inc. and KBS Trucking in Thomasville. Wagner saying, "This is where the rubber meets the road". "There's no greater example of Wagner's obstructionist tactics than his opposition to the severance tax".

The Republican primary campaign was described by longtime political observer G. Terry Madonna as the most brutal in modern history.

"And while we didn't achieve our goal, we must all remain focused on the most important goal, which is defeat Gov. Tom Wolf in November of this year". Republicans George F. Halcovage Jr., chairman of the Schuylkill County commissioners; Dan Meuser, a former state secretary of revenue, and Scott C. Uehlinger, a former Central Intelligence Agency station chief, are running for the GOP nomination; while Laura Quick, Gary Wegman and former state Secretary of Agriculture Dennis Wolff seek the Democratic nomination.

"It's unbelievable how negative they are and what that tends to do is to drive up what we call "the negatives" of a candidate", Madonna said. "So please join me in doing that".

"I'm a fighter, and when I get punched in the mouth, I punch back", Mango told the station when asked how voters should read his reaction to Wagner.
