Jack Wagner drops out of Pa. gov race

    Former state Auditor General Jack Wagner is dropping out of the governor’s race.

    Wagner formally withdrew from the Democratic primary race Wednesday, the last day he could have his name removed from the ballot.

    His departure leaves four candidates in the race — York businessman Tom Wolf, U.S. Rep. Allyson Schwartz, state Treasurer Rob McCord and former state environmental protection secretary Katie McGinty.
