Out candidate Tiffany Palmer has won in the May 2019 primary election for the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas.
"I'm very excited to be able to win by running a campaign based on progressive values and integrity," Palmer said.
Heather Kemp has worked on Palmer's campaign.
"I’m not sure that there’s a more genuine or compassionate person that could have run," Kemp said. "It’s a long, hard road to win something like this, and she has done everything in an upstanding way, and I’m really proud of her for that."
Palmer's daughter, Ellie Palmer, watched her mother win the election.
"Thank god she won," Ellie Palmer said.
