Candidates continue Election Day tradition at Philly’s Famous Fourth Street deli

    While voters made their way to the polls Tuesday in Philadelphia, pols made their way to lunch.

    In keeping with Election Day tradition here in the City of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia’s Democrats convened at a favorite lunch spot, the Famous Fourth Street Delicatessen.

    Every Election Day, incumbents, candidates, and comfortably seated politicians from around the area make their way to Famous Fourth Street for some camaraderie, a chance to shake a few hands, and, perhaps, a black-and-white cookie.

    Our NewsWorks photographer visited the popular spot and shot a few pictures of those in attendance: City Council President Darrell Clarke, council at-large candidate Ed Neilson, lieutenant governor candidate Mike Stack, state Rep. Michael O’Brien, and state Treasurer Rob McCord, a candidate for the Democratic nomination for governor.
