2012 Philly Primary Election Results

Al_Gore_Winner_2000_Election_CNNSo, after months of watching all these races until my eyes were ready to bleed my own blood, today was the Pennsylvania primary. And tonight were the results. We covered the Sims/Josephs debacle earlier in the day and told you what locals thought of the Voter ID Act (i.e. locals not broadcasting from WPHT). Then came the results. I got home late from work, so wasn’t able to be all, “WITH 3 PERCENT IN, IT’S DEWEY BY A LANDSLIDE!!!!” on here or Twitter. Lame. Anywho, here are all the results with some bonus facts where applicable. All results for all races (these are the contested ones) are available at Philly.com (courtesy of the Associated Press) and PhillyElectionResults.com (courtesy of Philadelphia’s election results.)

    Congratulations to Stephen Kinsey!

    He has worked in the community for years;he cares about the community; he is the best person for the job!

  2. Myke Chase says:


    Stephen Kinsey is a welcome change to the 201st district. So glad he won the primary!

  3. Karen L. says:

    Cherelle Parker is an enabler who has encouraged dependency on government offices. The Mt. Airy area was once a highly valued, sought after place to live. Now, Section 8 had caused a decline in the quality of life there. These residents come into her district office and demand help for things they should be able to manage themselves, and Parker continues to allow it! Instead of helping the neighborhood get back on its get, she is runningit into the ground. I continuously see her staff at events all over, but Parker herself is usually nowhere to be found. A disgrace.

  4. Pedro Rodriguez says:

    Karen L: get a life. Please.
