We did it!


Last night was a good night.

After months of work - knocking on doors, traveling the state, organizing our friends and neighbors and hitting the airwaves - our fight paid off.

We've won the Democratic Primary! And I'm proud to stand as your candidate for Lieutenant Governor.

Thank you. It was your help, your support and your commitment to the values that move Pennsylvania forward that got us here. I don't mind admitting it, so I'll say it again - thank you, thank you, thank you. For everything.

Of course, we weren't alone in this race. Our opponents - Mark Critz, Brad Koplinski, Brandon Neuman and Mark Smith - are all good men, each with a rock-solid commitment to the continued success of Pennsylvania. We simply came out ahead, and I wish them each the best of luck in whatever they choose to do next.

Now, enjoy the victory. Tell your friends, take a moment to celebrate...and then it's back to work.

Because we have a big campaign ahead. We'll be working side by side with Tom Wolf, who's running to replace Governor Corbett and the failed policies of his entire administration.

Tom has both the business experience we need to help put our economy back on track and the commitment to workers that will make him a tremendous ally in the fight to grow the middle class. He's a public servant, a community leader, and the right choice for Pennsylvania. And I look forward to standing with him.

It's a critical fight that will determine Pennsylvania's course for the next four years. And all of our priorities - job creation, access to better healthcare, an economy that works for all Pennsylvania families - are riding on this.

So enjoy the victory. You earned it.

Tomorrow, we're back at it. And thanks to you, I'm ready.

Great work!

Mike Stack

P.S.: We aren't the only ones who won a victory this week. Yesterday, Judge John Jones struck down Pennsylvania's ban on same-sex marriage. That clears the way for loving couples across the state to have their unions recognized here in Pennsylvania. Congratulations all around!
