Wagner gave his victory speech in the ballroom of the Wyndham Garden Hotel in York County. Four Democrats are challenging the York County Republican.
Perhaps the biggest primary race is for Governor where three Republicans are looking to face Democrat Incumbent Tom Wolf in the November general election. Wolf was uncontested in the primary, while Fetterman won the nomination among a field of five candidates.
For Wagner, the goal seems to be branding himself as a man of the people who happens to be wealthy, and labeling Wolf an out-of-touch elite.
"I want to thank Republican State Committee and our chairman Val Digiorgio". "I grew up on a farm".
Meanwhile, Wolf's campaign quickly released a statement targeting Wagner's work as a state senator, calling him an obstructionist for helping block a severance tax on natural gas-one of the governor's major priorities.
Wagner pledged to work to improve the state's business climate and press for better schools, but his supporters most enthusiastically responded to his pledge to get rid of school property taxes.

The music faded just after 10 p.m. Tuesday night at Mango's campaign watch party as supporters fell silent and waited for the bad news.
Along the way, Wagner pumped more than $10 million of his own cash into his campaign, and he spread hundreds of thousands more around the state since a year ago to boost GOP committees and candidates.
"I think we all know that this night did not turn out the way we wanted it to", she said. It was primarily an attack ad on Wagner's character by Mango's campaign that drew that description.
"I'm going to be a governor who leads the charge".
Wagner's lieutenant governor candidate is Montgomery County real estate developer Jeff Bartos, who had already been unofficially running alongside the senator.
John Fetterman won the five-way Democratic Party primary race for lieutenant governor Tuesday, beating incumbent Mike Stack.More news: Top WWE star apparently injured during dark match after Smackdown Live
