Josh Shapiro to become governor pennsylvaniawith the Democratic victory and the blow of Donald Trump, who endorsed and heavily publicized Shapiro’s radical Republican opponent, Doug Mastriano.
The Associated Press declared Shapiro the winner of the far-right Republican candidate, Mastriano.
Mastriano showed up at a meeting With Trump on Saturday – Shapiro held an event With Barack Obama and Joe Biden But even the flamboyant former president’s personal appearance couldn’t turn his fortunes around.
This victory should be a relief to democracy activists. The Governor of Pennsylvania appoints a person who certifies or does not certify the state’s election results. Mastriano previously tried to deny proof of his 2020 ballot in Pennsylvania, citing unsubstantiated fraud accusations.
As a Pennsylvania senator, Mastriano said women who violated the proposed six-week abortion ban should be charged with murder. He has repeatedly attacked trans people. Said Same-sex marriage should be illegal and same-sex couples should not be allowed to adopt children.
Pennsylvania’s Attorney General Shapiro will succeed Democrat Tom Wolfe, who served two terms as governor, the maximum number allowed by state law.
