Republican primaries for special elections Tuesday

Republican primaries for special elections Tuesday

It's primary season in Pennsylvania once again.

A runoff is expected in the Republican governor's race and voters who cast their ballot in the Democratic primary won't be able to participate.

Pennsylvania is hosting 21 contested primary elections on Tuesday's ballots for the state's 18 U.S. House seats. Per the U.S. Constitution, all the seats for the U.S. House of Representatives are up this year. Registered voters are eligible to vote for all candidates regardless of party affiliation.

Republican Party voters aiming to make Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf into Pennsylvania's second straight "one-term Tom" will choose between the garbage man who intends to clean up state government, the conservative military man who says he's got the business know-how and the grown-up lawyer who says she can get things done. Scott Wagner of York; businessman and Army veteran Paul Mango; and attorney Laura Ellsworth, who are both from Allegheny County. He also stripped Stack of state police protection. Every Congressional District in Virginia except one is contested this year.

Topping the GOP and Democratic tickets statewide are the governor, lieutenant governor and US senate races.

In contrast with Lake County, Drew Wenger, chair of the Valparaiso Democratic Committee, said Porter County has always had a Republican majority, though he thinks a growing number of Republicans are increasingly dissatisfied with their party and are selecting Democratic ballots as a result. All three are high-profile races, especially the one to replace Blake Farenthold, who resigned as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives on April 6. The victor faces Republican Gov. Greg Abbott in the fall.


All even-numbered senatorial districts are on the ballot this year.

By comparison, the 5th District race is genteel as candidates seek endorsements to separate themselves from the pack and Philadelphia's powerful electricians' union spends heavily to boost its favored candidate, Rich Lazer.

In the 26th District, Democrats Tim Kearney and Tanner Rouse are running for the chance to take on Republican Sen.

Senators expect the president will discuss the economy and his upcoming summit with North Korea, two topics that Republicans believe are crowd-pleasers among the electorate they need to motivate in November to the polls.

Six incumbents — Democrats Mike Doyle of Pittsburgh and Brendan Boyle and Dwight Evans of Philadelphia and Republicans Brian Fitzpatrick of Bucks County, Tom Marino of Lycoming County and Lloyd Smucker of Lancaster County — are facing primary challenges.
