Incumbent DeLissio Prevails in Primary Race for 194th District

According to the AP, Democrat Pam DeLisso defeated challenger Dave Henderson by 567 votes.

State Rep. Pam DeLissio defeated challenger Dave Henderson in the primary race to represent the 194th District, according to figures from the AP.

For most of the night, the race was neck and neck with both candidates leading at different times as the returns came in.

NewsWorks reported DeLissio claimed victory around 11 p.m. According to the AP, DeLisso defeated Henderson by 567 votes (3,758 to 3,191).

DeLissio will face Republian William Pounds, a Manayunk resident, during the general election. The 194th District includes all of Roxborough’s 21st Ward, East Falls, Manayunk and parts of Lower Merion.

FYI...she said on a town hall phone call she's hoping Obamacare gets converted to single payer. Then we can all be put on secret waiting lists like the VA.

We live in the 194th District...NOT the 191st.

Hey Marie...Maybe if you knew which District you voted in, you could make an informed comment. We live in the 194th District. And maybe, just maybe, if there was a candidate who could make a case for why we should replace someone, other than what we heard for the last few months, the results may have been different. I had no reason to vote against Pam...and no reason to vote for Dave. And maybe if the Affordable Care Act had been structured properly, everyone in this country would have the benefits of Universal Health Care

Now the BIG question! When will the Henderson committee remove all of the signage on Henry Ave. and Ridge Ave. and every planter box and stray piece of land in the district. Most of the signs were placed on State Highways, which is against the law, and have now blown around and become more trash on our streets. This is what happens when politicians from outside the district come in and try to run our elections, they don't care about us, only getting their hand picked candidate elected, which thank the electorate, didn't work. Let's see that clean begin. SOON!
