Y-Decide 2008’s Southeastern Pennsylvania Election Central

Yes, Greater Philadelphia, there are more races than just that top of the ticket race that everyone is talking about – John McCain v. Ron Paul v. Mike Huckabee.

Kidding.

But seriously, come back to this page after 8pm and throughout the night. I’m going to do what I can to keep track of all of the contested primaries in Philadelphia, Delaware, Chester, Montgomery and Bucks counties.

*Thomas Blackwell, the incumbent, failed to turn in enough valid signatures to get his name on the ballot. He is reportedly waging a write-in campaign. While the names written in will not be immediately known, we can provide a count of Vanessa Brown’s votes vs. any generic write-in vote.

UPDATE: Apparently, Thomas Blackwell’s write-in campaign wasn’t so close since I can’t find any results that say anything other than Vanessa Brown was uncontested and therefore the winner.

I did miss one contested race. In the 180th District in Philadelphia, the incumbent Angel Cruz defeated challenger Jonathan Ramos by about a thousand votes or 10 percentage points. That’s with 93% reporting but the race has been called.

    […] Your #1 source for Southeastern Pennsylvania results I just took some time to set up a page for keeping track of all of the results from the 5-county area. […]

    hi dan,

    What’s going on with the 1st district Senate race? Are there any results yet?

    We are waiting with bated breath.

  3. Dan Pohlig Says:

    Hi Levana,

    I’m sure you got the results by now. Sorry I bit off more than I could chew by thinking I could be on television and update these results all by myself.

    I’ll put up the latest that I have now but at this point it’s probably just for archival purposes.

    Thanks for reading!

    […] I’ve done my part to do two things at once – taking part in WHYY’s Election night coverage AND… updating our little corner of the results – the Southeastern Pennsylvania Contested Primary Results… a palooza. […]

  5. gr Says:

    Has there been any publicly available information on the two ballot questions? (I haven’t been able to find any elsewhere, but the usual means of asking Mr. Internet this sort of question are really only interested in Obama v. Clinton…)
