Philly Mayor John Street Easily Wins Re-election
Philly mayor John Street easily won re-election today:
It was the electronic bug found hidden in the ceiling of the mayor's office on Oct. 7 that overshadowed the campaign's final month and brought national attention to the race for mayor in the nation's fifth-largest city.
The continuing federal probe bolstered Street in surprising ways, as many voters in a 4-1 Democratic city listened to the Democratic Party's assertion that the federal probe was a GOP dirty trick.
Street's supporters contended it was evidence of a possibly racially inspired GOP plot to oust a Democratic mayor. Katz saw it as a logical result of a culture of corruption that he contended existed in City Hall.
