A look at Tuesday's primary election in Pennsylvania: what do we know so far? Any surprises? What do the results mean as the 2022 general election looms?

There was a lot on the line in the Pennsylvania primary, with many tight races, late surging candidates and results of major national importance. In the race for retiring Republican Senator Pat Toomey’s seat, Lt. Governor John Fetterman swept the Democratic field, while the Republican nominee for Senate is still too close to call between Dr. Mehmet Oz and David McCormick. For Governor, Republican State Senator Doug Mastriano will face Democrat Josh Shapiro this November.  We’ll talk about yesterday’s primary election results, what we learned about the state’s electorate, the issues that motivated voters and the influence of former President Trump’s endorsements. We’ll also discuss the direction of our major political parties and what it all means for the general election this fall.
