Philly voters give wins to Williams, Butkovitz
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - November 5, 2013 (WPVI) -- Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams and Controller Alan Butkovitz have defeated their Republican challengers in a sign of the power of incumbency and a nearly 7-1 Democratic edge in citywide voter registration.
Williams beat GOP challenger Daniel Alvarez, a former assistant district attorney, while Butkovitz won against Republican Terry Tracy, a retail business manager.
Williams, who was unopposed for the Demoratic nomination, got a second four-year term as the chief prosecutor in Pennsylvania's largest city.
Butkovitz, who won a three-way primary contest, was re-elected to his third term.
