Pennsylvania's Republican party has won one the biggest political plums on the 2013 election ballot — an open seat on the Superior Court, but Democrats won more of the local offices.
The GOP's Vic Stabile, a corporate lawyer in Harrisburg, defeated Allegheny County Judge Jack McVay Jr., the Democratic nominee, for the Superior Court spot by 51 percent of the vote, according to unofficial returns Tuesday.
Meanwhile, voters in five Pennsylvania cities elected Democratic mayors and heavily Democratic Philadelphia re-elected its district attorney and controller.
Mayors-elect include City Councilman Bill Peduto in Pittsburgh; businessman Eric Papenfuse in Harrisburg; and tax collector Bill Courtright in Scranton.
Incumbent mayors Rick Gray in Lancaster and Kim Bracey in York were re-elected handily, as was Democrat Elizabeth Goreham in the borough of State College.
