Pennsylvania Governor (D) Results

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has the county-by-county results of yesterday's Democratic gubernatorial primary in Pennsylvania. Former Philadelphia Mayor (and former DNC Chairman) Ed Rendell emerged victorious, defeating Robert Casey Jr. by 10 percentage points (55%-45%). Casey won all but 10 counties, but lost because of Rendell's overwhelming support in the Philadelphia media market. The results point to a close general election campaign.
