Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research congratulates Jim Kenney, who won the Democratic nomination for mayor of Philadelphia with more than 55 percent of the vote in a crowded field. Kenney defeated State Senator Tony Williams and former District Attorney Lynne Abraham, among others, despite entering the race late and being outspent 2:1 by his opponents and their allies. With no major opposition in the fall, Kenney is all but assured election in November.
Kenney joins New York Mayor Bill De Blasio and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel as GQR clients who have won mayoralties in 3 of America’s 5 largest cities. This project was led by Anna Greenberg, Ethan Smith and Kelly Higgins.
GQR also congratulates client Kevin Dougherty for winning one of three Democratic nominations for Pennsylvania Supreme Court.
