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.
