The Gubernatorial candidates Laura Ellsworth, Paul Mango, and Scott Wagner met Friday for the final debate ahead of the May 15th primary and spent the hour trying to contrast themselves from each other.
According to the Associated Press all three candidates pushed that they are in the best position to beat Governor Tom Wolf in the general election.
Ellsworth continued to push that she is a political outsider and that as a woman she will succeed in the “year of the woman.” Wagner used the debate to continue the message of his most recent ad, that he will fight for everyone regardless of whether they agree with him. Mango stuck to his messaging that as the most conservative in the field he would offer the most contrast to Wolf.
Mango continued to take shots at Wagner for character flaws, referencing an attack ad he ran against Wagner.
“The bottom line is, I have character flaws, I’m not a perfect person,” Wagner said according to the Associated Press.
The hour long debate did not cover much new ground as the candidates prepared for the final push to the primary election.
