I’ve been saying to folks for a minute that last year’s Democratic Mayoral Primary here in Philadelphia was going to have an impact that would be felt for a long time. U.S. Rep. Bob Brady, the chair of the Democratic City Committee, ran in the primary and came in third.
I predicted that although he was still chair of the party, the attempt to be mayor would weaken him if he lost.
None of these guys had the party backing.
All of them won.
Looks like Mayor Michael Nutter inadvertently created some kind of monster.
