Pennsylvania State Sen. Scott Wagner, who owns a waste-hauling business in south-central part of the state, has won the Republican primary to challenge Democratic incumbent Gov. Tom Wolf in the November general election. Wagner, whose acerbic style has been compared to President Trump’s, is a supporter of the natural gas industry, advocating to cut regulations and pushing back against repeated calls from Wolf to implement a severance tax on production. Wagner beat two other Republican candidates with about 44% of the vote. Wolf began his first term in office in 2015.
