Wolf vs. Wagner: Governor’s race is a York County showdown


It’s the big topic of discussion at the Round the Clock Diner Thursday. Both candidates for Pennsylvania Governor are from York County.

Stephanie Baracani is born and raised in York County. She’s excited for the race and what it means to have both candidates from here. 

“They’re going to be more in touch with what’s going on in their community,” Baracani said. “The fact that they’re both from York County, I think they should forget the mudslinging. My excitement is to see who’s going to one up each other on how much better they’re going to make the community.”

Chloe Senft says it will make the voters of York County see how in touch both Tom Wolf and Scott Wagner are with residents. 

 “I think it’s good to have the inside perspective of what York County values are. I think it’s good that they know what happens in York and the general ideas of York County citizens,” Senft said. 

Wagner won the Republican Primary on Tuesday, and he is from York Township. “Pennsylvania can and should have a Governor who’s on their side and someone who’s a lot like them. I’m a lot like all of you, and I’m a lot like a lot of Pennsylvanians,” Wagner said.

Wolf is from Mount Wolf, and he to is happy to see both nominees from the county. “It seems about time to me,” said Wolf.

Wolf’s running mate, John Fetterman, the mayor of Braddock, is also is a York County native. “I grew up here in York, and I always have a lot of love here,” Fetterman said. 

“Now is not the time to continue to show what you can find out about each other and how you can insult one another. It’s time to unite communities. It’s time to bring people together,” Baracani said.
