HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Vote-counting has begun in Pennsylvania on nationally watched questions on the primary ballot. Polls closed at 8 p.m. Two questions on Tuesday’s ballot seek to limit a governor’s emergency disaster declarations and put more power in the hands of lawmakers. Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf and his emergency management director call the proposals reckless. A third, unrelated question seeks to add a passage to the constitution outlawing discrimination because of someone’s race or ethnicity. Democratic Sen. Vince Hughes of Philadelphia said he sponsored it in case federal anti-discrimination case law is reversed by the Republican-majority U.S. Supreme Court or federal judges appointed by former President Donald Trump.
