Democratic gubernatorial nominee Dan Onorato visited City Council Thursday morning seeking support for the November election, but also to let his local supporters show their political muscles.

Onorato, in town and fresh off his primary victory Tuesday, came onto the floor of Council and shook hands with Curtis Jones Jr., who along with Bill Green were the only members of Council who backed him. "This is called flexing," said one political operative in the room. While most other Democrats supported African-American candidate Anthony Williams, the state Senator from West Philadelphia, Onorato's appearance was a nod to local politicians that his Democratic support crosses racial lines.

Onorato was briefly recognized by Council President Anna C. Verna.
