Wolf spends time with new ticket mate picked by party voters

By The Associated Press

MANCHESTER, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania's governor is getting to know his new running mate better, a day after Democrats voted to replace the incumbent lieutenant governor with the 6-foot-8 mayor of an economically struggling steel mill town.

Gov. Tom Wolf had lunch near his home Wednesday with his new ticket mate, Braddock Mayor John Fetterman.

Fetterman says he sees his role as doing what he can to help re-elect Wolf.

Fetterman beat three others for the nomination. Incumbent Lt. Gov. Mike Stack finished last.

Governors and lieutenant governors run for the nomination separately, and Wolf did not have a close relationship with Stack.

Wolf launched an investigation last year into the treatment of state employees by Stack and his wife.

The Republican candidate is state Sen. Scott Wagner, who also is from York.
