2018 Pennsylvania Primary Election – Meet Laura Ellsworth

Western PA attorney Laura Ellsworth says she has the best chance to beat incumbent Governor Tom Wolf in the November election, but before she can be the GOP’s nominee for the fall, she has to overcome a very heated and loud 3-way primary election.

Ellsworth visited the Radio PA studios on April 25th for this in-depth interview, laying out her plans for the Commonwealth’s future, and talking about her background, her family and her motivations for seeking the office.

This is the complete and unedited interview with Laura Ellsworth, and you can also hear excerpts of this conversation, as well as an analysis of the 2018 election in Radio PA’s 2-hour primary election special “Primary Choices: 2018.”

The primary election is Tuesday, May 15th.
