Jim Kenney wins, and three newcomers earn Democratic at-large City Council nominees

KENNEY

Latest Update

The race for at-large City Council is over and with about 97 percent of precincts reporting non-incumbents, Allan Domb, Derek Green and Helen Gym are among the top five vote-getters and will advance to the fall election.

As for the mayor’s race, nobody else had a chance. With only about 30 percent of precincts reporting and a little over an hour after the polls closed, the AP declared Jim Kenney the winner of Philadelphia’s Democratic mayoral primary. He had about 60 percent of the vote when it was called. The next-nearest candidate, Tony Williams, had 21 percent.

In the 2nd District, Kenyatta Johnson easily beat Ori Feibush, ending their political war over Point Breeze. And in the 7th District, Maria Quiñones-Sanchez held on to beat Manny Morales, the alleged racist Facebook poster.
