Only seven days separate us from Election Day and the most high-profile contest is of course the Democratic primary for Governor.
Tom Wolf, a businessman and former Department of Revenue Secretary, has held a solid lead for a few months now but has been the recent subject of a myriad of negative attacks.
Rob McCord, the commonwealth’s State Treasurer, has accumulated the most endorsements from state, party, and union officials yet has chosen to accuse Wolf of lacking leadership in his handling of the Charles Robertson affair.
Allyson Schwartz, an influential Congresswoman, was the early front-runner but fell behind as her campaign remained silent as Wolf skyrocketed in the polls. Now, she contends Wolf is not ready and untested in contrast to herself.
Finally Katie McGinty, the former Department of Environmental Protection, has run a positive campaign throughout and is hoping the recent discord in the race will redound to her benefit.
So, we ask you our readers, who should the Democrats chose as their nominee for Governor?
Who should Democrats nominate for Governor?
