WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf announced on Twitter on Wednesday that he tested positive for COVID-19, the latest governor to contract the virus.

Wolf, a Democrat, has drawn repeated fire from U.S. President Donald Trump after his state certified Democrat Joe Biden as the winner of the Nov. 3 presidential election.

Other governors that have tested positive for the novel coronavirus include Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, also a Democrat, and Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt, a Republican.
