Primed For Primary
Next week’s primary election is headlined by the race for the White House.
But party nominations for other regional and state-wide offices will also be on Tuesday’s primary ballot.
In addition to President Donald Trump, Rocky De La Fuente and Bill Weld will be on the Republican ballot for president.
De La Fuente has run for office in a myriad of states while Weld, the former governor of Massachusetts and 2016 Libertarian vice-presidential candidate, suspended his campaign back in March.
On the Democratic side, the presumptive nominee is Joe Biden, former vice-president and U.S. Senator from Delaware, though Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren will appear on the Democratic ballot in Warren County.
Elections Director Lisa Rivett said votes cast for Warren will be counted as write-ins while state guidance has indicated that votes for Sanders will be counted as normal.
At the state level, incumbent Democrat Josh Shapiro is seeking unopposed a second term as attorney general. The sole Republican challenger is Heather Heidelbaugh, a partner with the law firm Leech Tishman in Allegheny County and a former member of Allegheny County Council.
Timothy Defoor, Dauphin County controller, is seeking the Republican nomination for auditor general unopposed while five Democrats are seeking their party’s nomination: Scott Conklin, a state representative from Centre County; Michael Lamp, controller of the City of Pittsburgh; Tracie Fountain, a CPA with 29 years experience in the Auditor General’s office; Rose Rosie Marie Davis, a CPA and township auditor from Monroe County; Nina Ahmad, a former deputy mayor in Philadelphia and Christina Hartman of Lancaster County who has a consulting background.
