Election 2022: Your guide to the Pennsylvania general election

Voters in Pennsylvania soon will be selecting the candidates they think should represent them in a variety of positions: U.S. Senate, governor, Congress and the General Assembly.

The general election is Nov. 8.

To help voters make informed decisions at the polls, the York Daily Record, the Hanover Evening Sun, the Lebanon Daily News and other newspapers in the USA Today Network sent questionnaires to candidates running in the election.

The questions included issues, such as abortion, inflation, and gun control.

The winner will replace U.S. Senator Pat Toomey, who is retiring.
