PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The long shot campaigns of Nelson Diaz, Milton Street, and Doug Oliver came to a quick end on Tuesday night.

During the campaign, the polls consistently showed Diaz, Street, and Oliver in single digits.  And so it was when the returns came in — the predictions were right on target.

Still, Oliver says, he has no regrets.

“So I sit here on Tuesday, May 19th, at whatever time it is, and I’m surrounded by you guys, and I don’t care what the polls say.  This is a win.  This is a win for Philadelphia.”

Diaz, who called for reforms in educations and city wage taxes, says he hopes some of his ideas will be folded into the Kenney campaign.
