"And while we didn't achieve our goal, we must all remain focused on the most important goal, which is defeat Gov. Tom Wolf in November of this year".

According to the latest abc27/Susquehanna Polling & Research poll, Ellsworth is in third, inching closer to Mango in second, both behind Scott Wagner.

"I'm speaking directly to all the Democrats and Independents in Pennsylvania", Wagner said to a cheering crowd.

Meanwhile, Wolf's campaign quickly released a statement targeting Wagner's work as a state senator, calling him an obstructionist for helping block a severance tax on natural gas-one of the governor's major priorities.

Pennsylvania's lieutenant governor has become the first holder of the office to lose in a primary election. "I want it because I'm a down to earth guy, and I'm a results guy".

Wolf also will have a big cash advantage: Wolf headed into May with $14 million in his campaign account, while Wagner reported $2.2 million.

During a primary marked by Mango and Wagner aiming negative, personal TV ads at each other, DiGiorgio repeatedly called for civility.

Wagner was magnanimous in victory, thanking Mango and Ellsworth for "putting themselves forward as candidates". "You know, it's a snake pit".

"I would cut the "back-office, amusing business" that goes on financially", she said.
