Trump gives backing to Wagner in governor's race
WILKES-BARRE, Pa. - During his stop to campaign for GOP Senate candidate Lou Barletta, President Donald Trump endorsed another Republican candidate.
"We are honored to be joined tonight by your state's Republican nominee for governor. A great guy. Somebody I know well. He's going to be one hell of a governor. He's tough, he's smart -- Scott Wagner," said the president at the rally Thursday night.
Wagner is challenging incumbent Democrat Tom Wolf for governor.
One of the issues both parties have been keying in on is education funding, with both blasting each other's positions.
