Last week, NBC News’ Chuck Todd took a look at the politics of the Keystone state and named the commonwealth’s brightest rising stars. Todd mentioned Congressional candidate Ryan Costello, Attorney General Kathleen Kane, State Rep. David Reed and Montgomery County Commissioner Josh Shapiro.
We decided to ask our readers which of those four they felt had the best career ahead of them and whether the true future star of the commonwealth was even included in this list.
State Rep. Reed won the honor with 432 votes followed by Attorney General Kathleen Kane who received 403.
The option of “someone else” came in third, being chosen by 355 readers. Finally, Josh Shapiro and Ryan Costello came in fourth and fifth with 220 and 165 votes respectively.
The full results are included below:
Who do you believe is Pennsylvania’s brightest rising star?
- David Reed (27%)
- Kathleen Kane (26%)
- Someone else (23%)
- Josh Shapiro (14%)
- Ryan Costello (10%)
