Primary results for Philadelphia City Council races

    For a complete recap of tonight’s coverage, check out the collaborative effort by News Director Chris Satullo and Germantown Editor Patrick Cobbs.

    11:50 p.m. At-large candidate Sherrie Cohen: “It’s over for us.”

    11:30 p.m The 2nd District battle rages on. Kenyatta Johnson has 44.59 percent and Barbara Capozzi has 44.16 percent.

    11:25 p.m. Lamont Thomas is trailing Marian Tasco’s 63 percent in the 9th District with 29 percent.


    11:10 p.m. Few changes in the at-large races. Oh, O’Brien, Taubenberger, McColgan and Untermeyer lead the Republican race, though Malcolm Lanzin’s numbers are creeping in on Untermeyer’s. In the Democratic race, Greenlee, Reynolds-Brown, Green, Kenney and Goode are leading. Andy Toy and Sherrie Cohen are close behind.

    11:05 p.m. Cindy Bass has the 8th locked up with 95 percent of the vote in, and her nearest opponent (Greg Paulmier) trailing with 21 percent of votes to Bass’ 39 percent.

    10:50 p.m. Maria Quinones-Sanchez wins the 7th District Democratic vote in the tense race with opponent Danny Savage.

    10:35 p.m. Metro’s Brian Hickey quotes at-large incumbent Frank Rizzo as saying, “I don’t think there’s a way to catch up.”

    10:25 p.m. Local 98-backed Henon wins the Sixth District. In the at-large race, Sherrie Cohen is creeping up on Wilson Goode Jr. They’ve each got a little more than 9 percent of the Democratic vote.

    10:10 p.m. City Paper’s Isaiah Thompson is at the Maria Quinones-Sanchez party in the Seventh, where he says Sanchez is gearing up for a speech that sounds like her supporters think she’s won. Meanwhile, numbers from the Sixth District show a strong 65 percent lead by Bobby Henon, but that none of the precincts have been counted.

    10 p.m. Mark Squilla, Darrell Clarke and Curtis Jones secure their spots in the First, Fifth and Fourth districts.


    9:20 p.m. Cindy Bass has an early lead in the Eighth, with 48 percent of the vote over the other seven candidates. And it wouldn’t be election day without some disputes. Our reporters in the district say cops were called to an argument outside Bass’ party.

    Here’s who’s leading the city council races as of 8:45 p.m.

    First District: Mark Squilla (D)

    Second District: Ivan Cohen (R), Kenyatta Johnson (D)
