Pennsylvania Republicans Try to Kneecap Far-Right Gubernatorial Frontrunner Mastriano in Final Stretch

Republicans are working together to prevent far-right state Rep. from winning the GOP gubernatorial primary.

Voters will head to the polls Tuesday to pick a candidate to face off against presumptive Democratic nominee Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro.

The GOP primary was crowded Thursday with eight candidates led by Mastriano, according to recent polling from the Trafalgar Group.

The pollster found the hard-right candidate and 2020 election skeptic is leading the race with 27.6% support. Former Rep. Lou Barletta (R-PA) is in second with 17.6% support.

The other candidates in the race are far behind, while Trafalgar noted 11.3% of those polled were undecided.
