Eugene DePasquale wins 5-way Democratic primary, to face GOP's Dave Sunday in attorney general race | WESA

Pittsburgh native Eugene DePasquale was the winner in a five-way Democratic race Tuesday for the party’s Attorney General nomination.

In a Democratic primary with a ballot otherwise dominated by names from the eastern part of the state — starting with Scranton native Joe Biden — DePasquale stood out as one of just two Allegheny County candidates running statewide. Geography seemed to aid him Tuesday, as unofficial results show him carrying western and central Pennsylvania.

“It [geography] certainly was a factor, but I think more importantly, [it] was my record as auditor general,” he said.
