With nearly 40% of the vote when the race was called, John Fetterman solidly beat four other Democratic candidates in the primary for Pennsylvania’s lieutenant governor, including incumbent Mike Stack. Democrat Nina Ahmad had roughly 22 percent of the vote.
Fetterman will be Gov. Tom Wolf’s running mate in the November general election. The two will face off against the Republican ticket of gubernatorial candidate Scott Wagner and lieutenant governor candidate Jeff Bartos, who also secured their victories Tuesday night.
“It’s overwhelming,” Fetterman told supporters after his victory.”I’m just coming at this from a low-key, overwhelmed, humble place.”
