Results are Mostly In

Ok, we're nearing the end of the night. And here's what we have.

* In the Council races, Mark Squilla won in the 1st, Bobby Henon in the 6th, Cindy Bass in the 8th and Councilwoman Maria Quinones-Sanchez easily won in the 7th. State Rep. Kenyatta Johnson was up in the 2nd tonight, but we're told Barbara Capozzi hasn't conceded yet.

* It's the end of the road for Republican City Councilman Frank Rizzo and City Commissioner Marge Tartaglione, both participants in the controversial DROP program. Neither won re-election tonight.

* In the GOP, the party establishment couldn't get all their candidates through. Al Schmidt won one of the two City Commissioner slots, despite party opposition. And state Rep. Dennis O'Brien won a spot in the at-large pool in November without party support.
