Philadelphia Primary Election
The election watchdog group Committee of Seventy expects only 13 to 14 percent of voters to turnout for Tuesday’s primaries in the City of Philadelphia.
In the democratic primary for Mayor of Philadelphia, Mayor Michael Nutter and his opponent Milton Street cast their votes early Tuesday morning and urged people to vote.
Five of the 17 Philadelphia City Council members are retiring and there is no shortage of candidates to replace them. Plus, Mayor Nutter faces a challenge from Milton Street.
The Nutter campaign will go before a judge arguing that Milton Street, brother of former mayor John Street, should not be on the May 17th primary ballot.
