PITTSBURGH - The Pennsylvania Democratic gubernatorial candidates are campaigning for votes ahead of Tuesday’s primary election.
Katie McGinty, former secretary of the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, was in the Pittsburgh area Saturday. She greeted voters in the Strip District and the Hill District in hopes of encouraging people to get out and vote.
“We’re here to work with community leaders to say it’s imperative that everybody get out to vote on Tuesday. The future of the commonwealth’s at stake, there’s so much good we can do, and there’s so much change and direction that we need,” said McGinty.
Tom Wolf, who is the front-runner in the polls, looked for votes in southeastern Pennsylvania on Saturday while talking about the importance of a fresh start for the state.
"I want a future with both of my daughters. Both of them are very talented, neither one of them lives in Pennsylvania. I want a Pennsylvania that they want to come home to,” said Wolf.
Former congresswoman Allyson Schwartz also paid a visit to southeastern Pennsylvania on Saturday.
Tuesday’s primary will decide who will run against Gov. Tom Corbett in November.
