Reader Poll: Don’t Back Jack for Guv
308 readers (71%) didn’t think Wagner should run for the Democratic nomination for Governor next year, while 128 readers (29%) thought he should.
Jack Wagner ran for Governor once before, in 2010, but lost in the primary to Allegheny Co. Exec. Dan Onorato. He also fell short in a bid for Pittsburgh Mayor last month, losing to Councilman Bill Peduto.
Should he choose to run again next year, he would find himself in what is sure to be a crowded field for the Democratic nomination which so far includes Congresswoman Allyson Schwartz, former Revenue Sec. Tom Wolf, former DEP Secs. John Hanger and Katie McGinty, and former pastor Max Myers.
