"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".

Wagner defeated challengers Laura Ellsworth and Paul Mango.

Wolf's polling numbers suggest he is in a comfortable spot to seek re-election, political scientists say, and he has worked to show that he can deftly operate the levers of government despite butting heads inside the state Capitol with huge Republican legislative majorities. Ellsworth, a commercial litigation attorney, never mustered that kind of cash, and she and Mango were relative unknowns when they began their campaigns.

Wagner, like Mango and Ellsworth, is not taking any vote for granted.

The polls are now closed for today's 2018 Pennsylvania primary election, with races for U.S. Senate and House of Representatives and the governorship on the ballot.

"The people of Pennsylvania can and should have a governor who's on their side".
