(Lancaster) -- A Lancaster County commissioner is the latest Democrat getting into the race for lieutenant governor.

Craig Lehman is the fourth candidate willing to challenge the party's sitting lieutenant governor, Mike Stack.

The 54-year-old Navy veteran has been in office since 2008.

Also running are Braddock Mayor John Fetterman, school nutrition activist Aryanna Berringer and Chester County Commissioner Kathi Cozzone.

Stack is a former Philadelphia state senator and is seeking a second term. He has little relationship with Democratic Governor Tom Wolf, who stripped the Stack of police protection after receiving complaints about the lieutenant governor's treatment of state employees.

March 6 is the deadline for major party candidates to file voter signatures to get on the May 15 primary election ballot.
