Republican Stacy Garrity has declared victory over incumbent Democrat Joe Torsella in the race for Pennsylvania treasurer, which has yet to be called by the Associated Press.
The state treasurer is the custodian of over $120 billion, managing and investing part of it. This year, Republican businesswoman Stacy Garrity took on incumbent Democrat Joe Torsella, who ran for reelection.
Garrity released a statement Tuesday afternoon declaring victory, and Torsella shortly after posted a video to Twitter.
“Stacy Garrity and I disagreed about a lot during this campaign. But the campaign’s over. So, a little while ago, I called her to offer not just my congratulations, but also any help she might need as she prepares to inherit this important job,” Torsella says.
