Looks like Farnese will replace Fumo

With 97 percent of the votes counted, unofficial results show Larry Farnese winning the three-way battle in the Democratic Primary for the 1st District Senate seat vacated by Vince Fumo.

With 277 of 287 Philadelphia precincts reporting, Farnese has 29,825 votes (43 percent) to John Dougherty's 26,206 votes (38 percent) and Anne Dicker's 13,117 votes (19 percent).

Farnese will take on Republican Jack Morley in November, but this is a heavily Democratic district, so Farnese has the edge.
