Three GOP candidates for governor are facing off to see who will take on Tom Wolf in November.

Pennsylvania Republican gubernatorial candidates Paul Mango, Scott Wagner and Laura Ellsworth are battling it out as voters head to polls in Tuesday's primary election.

In the 30-second ad, Wolf talks about his push to reform Pennsylvania.

"The day I'm sworn in as the new governor and they give me the keys to the Governor's office, I'm ready to go", said Wagner.

State Sen. Scott Wagner - the Republican Party's endorsed candidate, WCAU-TV reported - has been trading attacks with Paul Mango, a former health care systems consultant and ex-Army paratrooper.

Unofficial figures from the Union County Department of Elections and Voter Registration indicated Mango received 1,543 votes (47.7 percent) to 1,242 for Wagner (37.8 percent).

Wolf campaign manager Jeff Sheridan released a statement last night denouncing Wagner.

Fetterman, the 6-foot-8, no non-sense, blue collar mayor who is known for traditionally ditching the suit-and-tie, will now run with Gov. Wolf in November.

"I want to thank Republican State Committee and our chairman Val Digiorgio".

Scott Wagner is the apparent victor of the GOP nomination in the race for governor of Pennsylvania.

As the race ended, he finally got it.

Laura Ellsworth, an attorney from Allegheny County, received 489 votes from Union County Republicans (14.9 percent).

And Ellsworth and Mango both said they'll support Wagner in service of a larger goal.

"I would cut the "back-office, amusing business" that goes on financially", she said.

Mango echoed the sentiment, telling his supporters, "We must all remain focused on the most important goal, which is to defeat Governor Tom Wolf".

John Fetterman won the five-way Democratic Party primary race for lieutenant governor Tuesday, beating incumbent Mike Stack.
