  1. What a murder’s row running for Governor! Is this really the best Pennsylvania has to offer? The Democrats should be ashamed of themselves for clearing the deck of the Titanic for Shapiro. The Republicans have a candidate pool in dire need of chlorine. Maybe it is time to break the Commonwealth up into portions and lease it to our neighboring states. That would certainly address the future “deficit” that Republicans want us to believe is coming.

    Sorry folks in the east, you are stuck with New Jersey, but at least you won’t have to worry about any of these buffoons running for governor potentially ruining your lives.

    1. Obviously you have not heard or seen Dr. Nche Zama, or read his book which you can get on Amazon it’s called “mommy please don’t die” read it and then come back with your enlightened opinion.

    2. Join Shapiro did a phoenomenal job on criminal investigations that clueless lazy or crooked previous GOPer atty gens abandoned . he’ll do a great job as governor.

  2. I don’t believe Mastriano can win in the fall, doubt Lou can either. Shapiro can be beat by a candidate with suburban appeal and conservative credentials.

  3. Dammit Kathy got that #1 slot giving her a 1% boost. Time to run attack ads against her

  4. I think the symbolism of drawing the last position on a ballot doesn’t bode well for a campaign. Lou and Mastriano drawing number 1 and 2 on the ballot is a political sign of where the campaign is going for R’s for Gov. A Trumper will be nominated. Sen Corman drawing last is like the “day old bread sale” campaign. It’s going nowhere.

    1. Not true. You could be the first to pick from the hat and you could draw the last position.

      1. Never heard of this dick. Must be related to this imposter poster or maybe the imposter himself. Both of the above posts are from the imposter.

        1. I absolutely know Doug Mastriano is the best candidate for guv. The above post is from the fake poster imposter.

      2. Dr. Nche Zama Lucky #3 on the ballot #1 class A and future governor of PA. Read his book “mommy please don’t die” get it on Amazon

        1. Shapiro is a religious bigot – hates People of faith and his badge of honor was to sue the Little Sisters of the Poor. What a slime ball. Never prosecuted a single criminal.
