Six days later, the final tally is in. Kenyatta Johnson has won Philadelphia’s 2nd Councilmanic District Democratic primary. The final numbers show the Pennsylvania state representative won with a narrow lead over opponent Barbara Capozzi.
The Inquirer reports absentee and provisional ballots gave Johnson a 53-vote lead, and even the 40 disputed ballots won’t change the race’s outcome. Final counts for the city’s close races began Friday.
