Cherelle Parker wins Philadelphia Democratic primary for mayor

Cherelle Parker won the Philadelphia Democratic primary for mayor, the Associated Press called the race Tuesday night.

Parker will face Republican David Oh, who ran unopposed, in November's general election. If Parker beats Oh in November, she would be the first woman to become mayor of Philadelphia.

The winner of the race will become Philadelphia's 100th mayor and replace Mayor Jim Kenney, who has been in office since 2016.

"I'm so incredibly honored to have earned the Democratic nomination tonight," Parker wrote in a tweet. "It's been a long road, and to see the tireless work of my campaign team, supporters, and family pay off is humbling. I'm looking forward to November and bringing our city together as its 100th mayor."
