Unofficial Primary Results on Party Delegates Are In

We've got the rundown on the local delegates going to each party's convention.


The polls have all reported in and while there wasn't much of a contest anywhere on the board in our area (except for the special election in the 153rd to fill Josh Shapiro's vacated seat), folks have been wondering who we'll be sending to the national conventions to represent the parties locally this year. Keep in mind these results are unofficial. Here's the rundown:
