Just In Time For Primary, Wagner Takes Tough Abortion Stance

(Harrisburg) — With less than a week before the primary elections, GOP gubernatorial candidate Scott Wagner is voicing his support for a restrictive abortion bill.

The stance is in line with a recurring theme in the race—the York County Senator’s apparent battle with rival Paul Mango over who is farther right politically.

The proposal is sponsored by Allegheny County Representative Rick Saccone, who is running for Congress. He initially floated it late last year, but it was only assigned to a committee last week.
