At stake in Pennsylvania governor race: Abortion, presidency

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Voters electing a new governor of Pennsylvania will choose between Democrat Josh Shapiro and Republican Doug Mastriano. At stake in Tuesday's election are the future of abortion rights and management of the 2024 presidential election in a swing state that is often decisive. Shapiro is the state’s two-term elected attorney general. He smashed Pennsylvania’s campaign finance record in a powerhouse campaign in which Democrats nationally faced headwinds. Mastriano is a retired Army colonel, state senator and relative political novice. He ran a hard-right campaign and refused for much of it to talk to mainstream news organizations. Pennsylvania polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
