Six vie for Democratic nomination for lieutenant governor

Written by The Associated Press | Feb 5, 2014 12:19 PM

(Harrisburg) -- A state representative from Washington County is the sixth candidate for the Democratic nomination for lieutenant governor.

Representative Brandon Neuman says his experience as a lawyer and
two-term legislator qualify him for the number two slot on the gubernatorial ticket.

Neuman faces competition from five other candidates.

They are state Senator Mike Stack, Bradford County Commissioner Mark Smith, former Congressman Mark Critz, Harrisburg City Councilman Brad Koplinski and former Harrisburg parks and recreation director Brenda Alton.

The Democratic State Committee meets Saturday in Hershey.

It may consider making endorsements in the May 20th primary for the lieutenant governor candidates and the seven gubernatorial candidates, or it may vote not to endorse anyone.
