Voters in both parties chose Pennsylvania state representatives Tuesday to be their nominees for lieutenant governor this fall and some prominent GOP leaders in the General Assembly found themselves in tight races.

Republicans elected state Rep. Carrie Lewis DelRosso to run in November with their choice for governor, state Sen. Doug Mastriano. Democrats gave their nominee for governor, Attorney General Josh Shapiro, his choice for second-in-command, Rep. Austin Davis.
