Davis Wins Lt. Governor Race

Let no one doubt Josh Shapiro’s coattails.

His endorsed running mate, Austin Davis, easily won the Democratic nod for lieutenant governor and will join Shapiro on the November ballot.

The 32-year-old state representative from Allegheny County easily defeated Brian Sims and Ray Sosa on his way to the nomination. He is on track to take about 90% of the vote in Allegheny County. Early returns suggested he may even take Sims’ home county of Philadelphia.

Shapiro and Davis will square off with Republican Doug Mastriano and a yet-to-be-determined running mate in November.

  1. Brian Simms had an excellent political mailer but it came the last week of the campaign when many voted already. The mailer was very professional and highlighted his life well with photos of his university football days and other matters. I understand mail-in changes the timing of when these political flyers should be mailed out but a word to the wise—if the R’s fail to gut mail-in which if there is a God they will fail because it is a good idea—all political mailings need to be completed at least two weeks before Election Day.

  2. Brian Sims had 10 years in the legislature to create this outcome. Zero results begets zero results. And the PR stunts on social media all these years had a lot to do with this too. And your poor buddy Deja goes down too! Buh bye Brian! Tell the folks at Victory Fund that all of Pennsylvania says adios!
