Pennsylvania’s Democratic attorney general has announced his candidacy for governor. In a speech and a campaign video, Josh Shapiro sought to tie Republican rivals to the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection and former President Donald Trump’s efforts to overturn last year’s election. Shapiro is running unopposed in the Democratic primary so far, while the Republican field is crowded with state senators, business leaders, a former congressman, a former federal prosecutor under Trump and others. The Republican Governors Association says Shapiro would continue what it called the “failed policies” of the incumbent governor, Democrat Tom Wolf, who's constitutionally barred from seeking a third term.
