(Pittsburgh, Pa.) It’s now official as Pennsylvania’s Attorney General Josh Shapiro announced in a video that was released by his campaign that he is running to be the next governor of Pennsylvania.
Shapiro stated in the video that “We’re at a critical time in America, here in Pennsylvania, too,” “I understand people feel like our politics are divided and broken right now but we can’t just take our ball and go home, there’s too much on the line.”
Shapiro is the first Democrat to announce a run for governor to replace current Governor Tom Wolf, who by law cannot run for a third term.
Several Republicans, including Lou Barletta, Bill McSwain, and Jeff Bartos, have announced their campaigns for governor.
Shapiro will officially launch his campaign in Pittsburgh today, Ocotber13, 2021.
