Fetterman Reportedly Close to an LG Run
Democratic Braddock Mayor and former Senate candidate John Fetterman is reportedly in the final stages of decision making ahead of running for Lieutenant Governor next year. Fetterman would be the third primary challenger to incumbent Lieutenant Governor Mike Stack.
Over the weekend, Philly Clout reported that Fetterman will ensure he wins re-election for his fourth term as Braddock’s mayor, then turn his attention to a campaign against Stack.
Fetterman declined to comment about his plans, but former Governor Ed Rendell continued to have positive remarks about Fetterman.
“If Fetterman has the guts to run without Wolf’s blessing, I think he’ll win,” Rendell told Philly Clout. But he added “He’s hoping to get Wolf’s blessing.”
Wolf’s campaign spokesman Jeff Sheridan had no comment for Philly Clout when asked if Wolf would support Stack, another candidate, or stay neutral in the race.
Chester County Commissioner Kathi Cozzone and Aryanna Berringer from Westmoreland county have both announced bids for the primary.
