>>PA Dems Decide Endorsements for Gov., Lt. Gov. but Not For U.S. Senate
( PA) -- The Pennsylvania Democratic Committee has met and come away with endorsements for just two of three statewide races: governor and lieutenant governor. The Democrats were unable to endorse a candidate for U.S. Senate after two rounds of voting as none of the candidates reached the two-thirds vote threshold necessary for endorsement. U.S. congressman Conor Lamb fell just a few votes short at 60-percent. Lt. Governor John Fetterman finished second, with less than a quarter of the vote, and State Rep. Malcolm Kenyatta finished third. In the other two positions, the Dems endorsed A.G. Josh Shapiro for governor and State Rep. Austin Davis for lieutenant governor. Austin Davis is the first Black candidate to be endorsed for the role.
