Pennsylvania state Sen. Wagner GOP's pick to face Gov. Wolf

PA-Gov: Gubernatorial primary marked by mudslinging: 'When I get punched in the mouth, I punch back'

Mango conceded about an hour later, saying he hopes Republicans rally to defeat Wolf in the general election.

In the 30-second ad, Wolf talks about his push to reform Pennsylvania.

"We've been going from 6 a.m.in the morning until 1 a.m. the next morning for the last couple of months", she said.

Along the way, Wagner pumped more than $10 million of his own cash into his campaign, and he spread hundreds of thousands more around the state since previous year to boost GOP committees and candidates.

Watch StateCollege.com editor Geoff Rushton's C-NET interview with Scott Wagner below. While campaigning for the primary election, Wagner polled ahead of his opponents and scored endorsements from the Pennsylvania GOP, Steve Bannon and the "Making America Great" PAC. They include Alan Howe and Eric Ding of Cumberland County, and Shavonnia Corbin-Johnson and George Scott, both of York County.

Wagner may be the front-runner in the poll, but he said he's acting like the underdog. Scott and Jeff are beyond humbled to have secured the nomination of the Republican Party, and are eager to enter into the next phase of the race. We have a governor [Tom Wolf] who's not providing leadership. It was primarily an attack ad on Wagner's character by Mango's campaign that drew that description. "And I can tell you the President of the United States wants to make sure we win here", he said.

As the race ended, he finally got it.

The third candidate and another political novice, Laura Ellsworth, came away with 18 percent of the vote.

"It's unbelievable how negative they are and what that tends to do is to drive up what we call "the negatives" of a candidate", Madonna said.

"All of us in this room who have fought for so long to replace our sitting governor are going to help the Republican Party win in November", Ellsworth said in her concession speech.

Primary night also gave Wagner and Wolf their running mates.

Wolf's ticket saw an upset, with incumbent lieutenant Mike Stack losing badly to John Fetterman, the mayor of a small Allegheny County steel town. Deb Fischer notched an easy Republican primary victory on Tuesday over four other GOP candidates, some of whom argued she wasn't conservative enough for deep-red Nebraska.
