Allegheny County state Rep. Carrie DelRosso has won the Republican nomination for Pennsylvania lieutenant governor, according to the Associated Press.
The Associated Press called the race early Wednesday morning. Unofficial tallies showed DelRosso capturing 27.22 percent of the vote in the crowded GOP primary field.
DelRosso defeated eight challengers, including Teddy Daniels, who has the backing of Republican gubernatorial nominee Doug Mastriano.
She will run on the same ticket with Mastriano in the November general election against Democratic gubernatorial candidate Josh Shapiro, and his running mate, Austin Davis.
