Pennsylvania Rejects Far-Right Wing Nut Doug Mastriano for Governor, Elects Josh Shapiro in Midterm Election


Democratic Party of Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro will become the next governor of the state after defeating the far-right state Senator Doug Mastrianoalong the three major networks.

Shapiro has run a largely uneventful campaign, presenting himself as a moderate and pragmatic alternative to Mastriano, whose position is often on the right wing of Republican politics. When avoiding anything cynical or controversial, Shapiro steadily built a solid lead in the polls ahead of Election Day.

Shapiro’s lenient bid stands in stark contrast to his opponent, who has made the news almost weekly despite refusing to speak to the mainstream press. Mastriano finds himself on the defensive due to his relationship with right-wing extremistsanti-Semitism and other fringe beliefs during the general election.

Mastriano was endorsed by former President Trump in the state primaries and remained closely aligned with Trump throughout the general election cycle, including campaigning directly with the former president.

After the fall of Roe v. Wade this summer, Shapiro will likely play a key role in maintaining access to abortion in the state — one of many areas where he and Mastriano differ on policy.

Mastriano Swear to “Sign the Heartbeat bill into law, end funding for Planned Parenthood and expand counseling to adoption services.”

Shapiro will succeed Governor Tom Wolf, a Democrat who holds the term.
