District Attorney Vote Reveals a Divided City

Unofficial results for the race for Philadelphia district attorney showed a city divided by geography and race and ethnicity. Republican Beth Grossman's support was concentrated in Northeast Philadelphia, home to many of the city's police officers and firefighters. Larry Krasner's support was strongest in the minority-heavy wards of North and West Philadelphia.
In wards won by Grossman, the population is 72 percent white, as of the 2010 census. In wards won by Krasner, the population is 73 percent minority.
