The votes are counted in PA and the nominees have secured their spots for the General Election in November later this year. The New York Times reported only minutes ago that the races for candidates for Governor have been called, but the U.S. Senate remains too close to call.

With more than 55% of the vote, 25% reported, Lt. Governor John Fetterman has been called for the Democratic Party nominee for U.S. Senate. Fetterman maintains a significant lead  ahead of runner-up Rep. Conor Lamb, despite experiencing a stroke over the weekend. Expected to make a healthy recovery, Fetterman’s wife Gisele Fetterman posted on Twitter that his procedure went well, referring to the defibrillator that was surgically implanted today.

Dave McCormick and Mehmet Oz are close with McCormick in the lead in the Republican running for U.S. Senate, as of presstime. Pennsylvania election law sets parameters to trigger a recount when results are within a certain percentage; observers predict this is on the horizon.

Attorney General Josh Shapiro’s campaign for Democratic nominee for Governor was unopposed, securing him 100% of the primary vote.

Rep. Doug Mastriano has surpassed former Rep. Lou Barletta’s lead on the Republican side for governor; however at 10 p.m., Mastriano recorded 43% of the ballots, and The New York Times called it, as compared to Barletta’s 23%. Bill McSwain trailed with 15.6 of the vote

The primary race for Lieutenant Governor has been called; Rep. Austin Davis has secured over 67% of the vote, winning the nomination with a staggering lead over Democratic opponents Rep. Sims of Philadelphia and Sosa of Montgomery County.

In the Republican running for Lieutenant Governor, Carrie DelRoso of Allegheny County has taken the nomination.

Stay tuned to Hawkeye for updates as they come in, and more races are called.
