Tom Wolf faced no opposition from fellow Democrats in his bid for a second term, the same can't be said for his lieutenant governor.

In the Democratic primary for Lieutenant Governor of Pennsylvania, an unprecedented race led to an unprecedented victory.

Mike Stack was among five Democrats on Tuesday's primary election ballot, and he didn't emerge the victor.

With almost 99.5 percent of voting districts reporting statewide, John Fetterman won the Democratic nomination for lieutenant governor.

The Braddock mayor who rose to state and national prominence during his run for U.S. Senate in 2016, emerged from a crowded field to win the Democratic nomination for lieutenant governor in Tuesday's primary.

Last year, Wolf ordered an investigation into the treatment of state employees - including state police troopers - by Stack and his wife, and stripped Stack of state police protection.

Stack's office later disclosed that his wife had entered treatment for a mental health issue.

Fetterman, who carried Centre County, won about 38 percent of the vote statewide with 97 percent of precincts reporting, well ahead of runner-up and former Philadelphia Deputy Mayor Nina Ahmad, Chester County Commissioner Kathi Cozzone, Stack, and Montgomery County businessman Ray Sosa.
