Results: SC-5  (AP) || SC-5 (DDHQ)  || PA (AP)  || GA-Senate 32(Cobb)  GA-Senate 32(Fulton)

10:15 ET – I am going to call it an evening as the only outstanding races of interest are PA-Superior Court (Republican Primary) and PA-Commonwealth Court (Democratic Primary).   We will have an open thread from here on regarding the Los Angeles races.

9:47 ET – Philly machine death watch… Krasner gets the check for DA and Rhynhart gets the check for Controller.

9:45 ET – With another dump in GA Senate 32, I am going to call it for Kilpatrick (R) with 89% in from Cobb and 100% in from Fulton.

9:37 ET – We might be seeing the first signs of the death of the Philadelphia Democratic machine as two candidates not considered machine candidates are winning DA and Controller with 57% in.

9:33 ET – Cobb has dumped 50% of the precincts as Kilpatrick remains up 58-42 in Cobb, which means that Kilpatrick is up by approximately 56% to 44%.  This looks like Kilpatrick will hold this for the Republicans.

9:30 ET – All of Fulton has been counted in GA-Senate 32 and Kilpatrick remains up by about 10%.  Cobb still has 72% of its precincts to report.

9:30 ET – Pittsburgh Mayor Peduto (D-Bike Lane) has received the check with 66% of the vote with 50% counted.

9:25 ET – Bold Progressive Philly DA candidate Lawrence Krasner (D) is out to a 16 point lead with 42% in.

9:10 ET – Back to GA Senate 32… Kilpatrick remains up with 28% in from Cobb and only early votes in Fulton.

9:08 ET – Norman has won the SC-5 Republican runoff.

9:06 ET – In Pennsylvania, it appears the Democratic endorsed candidate for Commonwealth Court, Todd Eagen, is polling 4th right now.

8:48 ET – Norman is up by approximately 400 votes with 51 precincts remaining.

8:42 ET – Norman is down to 1% lead over Pope, but the remaining precincts are in Pope favoring York County.

8:40 ET – Pope and Norman are within 10 votes of each other with 2/3 in.

8:27 ET – Norman has taken the lead in SC-5 according to DDHQ.

8:15 ET – There appears to be a glimmer of hope for Norman in SC-5 as the results continue to narrow and his areas are just starting to heavily report.

8:07 ET – Pope’s lead is narrowing as 1/3 of the results are in. Pope leads by 4%.

8:03 ET – In Georgia State Senate District 32, Kilpatrick (R) leads Triebsch (D) 58% to 42% as the first results roll in.

8:00 ET – Pennsylvania has closed.

7:50 ET – With 7% in, Pope leads Norman 58% to 42% in SC-5.

7:41 ET – Turnout is supposedly low in the Pennsylvania primaries today, which close at 8pm Eastern.  I was the 14th Republican to vote and 25 voter overall in my ward at 915 AM.

7:33 ET – Ryan_in_SEPA here for the liveblog.  Pope still has a 60 vote lead as the early vote starts being counted.

7:30 ET- I will be turning this over to Ryan_in_SEPA for the rest of the night.

7:13 ET- Norman leads pope 69-66 in the first early votes.

      If Norman can narrow the margin in York-could be Pope’s home area reporting 1st–he should win?

      • MosheM May 16, 2017 at 8:10 pm

        The early York results were in Pope areas in the first round.

    Dang this sc congressional run off is super close

  • segmentation_fault May 16, 2017 at 8:24 pm

    This overlaps with GA-6 a bit and I think the numbers for the Dem are pretty close to what Ossoff got within this SD. But I’m not sure.

      Looks like SD-32 was 54-40 Trump?

    • Manhatlibertarian May 16, 2017 at 9:52 pm

      Looks to me like the GOP takes this Ga race. Don’t see how the Dem can overcome the GOP lead.

  • jocallag May 16, 2017 at 10:08 pm

    The only problem for the GOP with this election is that their candidate only won 57% of the vote compared to 60% for the combined GOP candidates in the first state senate election. Also their victory was due to a low turnout of 17% in the more Dem minority part in Fulton county compared to the 27% plus turnout in the heavily white part in Cobb county. In the first election with Ossoff on the ballot Fulton had a 38% turnout compared to 45% in Cobb. This means that many Ossoff voters stayed home in this state senate runoff but will return in the June 20 congressional runoff.

  • jocallag May 16, 2017 at 10:16 pm

    Final with all precincts in R Kirkpatrick wins with 18602 votes compared to 12369 in the first election. D Triebsh received 14046 compared to 14199 in the first election. But all five GOP candidates won 35276
    in the first election (60%) compared to 23359 for three Dem candidates

    The Philly results are striking. Seems like oodles of late-night TV ads really did help Krasner (Soros gets some return on his big $ investment in a local race) and Khan in the DA race and the “machine” isn’t quite so unified. It’s going to be interesting to see who comes out in favor of Grossman (nominal R) for the general since even Krasner acknowledged in his own speech that he’s disliked by many in the DA’s office and police.

    Was one of 5 GOP (v.~120 Dem) ballots in my precinct. Pretty pathetic turnout, even if there wasn’t much to vote on.


    PA-02

    • Ryan_in_SEPA May 16, 2017 at 10:36 pm

      I hope the machine just ignores the general races in Philly. The Democrats not showing up in large numbers in Philly is always a good thing for our statewide judicial candidates.

    Sad to see Paula Patrick lose for PA Superior Court.

    • TheWizardOf144 May 16, 2017 at 10:56 pm

      I didn’t vote for her. I have no particular issue with her but I will not vote for Philadelphia based candidates.
