HARRISBURG – Republican candidate Stacy Garrity is claiming victory over incumbent Democrat Joe Torsella in the Pennsylvania state treasurer’s race. Garrity is a retired U.S. Army Reserves colonel who is vice president of a tungsten smelting plant near hear home in Athens, Bradford County. Torsella conceded Tuesday via a video he posted on Twitter. The Associated Press hasn’t called the race because it’s not clear if Garrity will finish with a large enough lead to avoid an automatic statewide recount. Garrity repeated her campaign message that a major goal was to use the Treasury Department’s leverage to push lawmakers and the governor to limit state government spending to money that has been formally appropriated by the Legislature.
