Ballots are still being counted from Pennsylvania’s primary election, and some of the top statewide contests in Pennsylvania are still too close to call. 

There is clarity in the biggest judicial race on the ticket.

Commonwealth Court judge Kevin Brobson won his three-way GOP primary for an open Supreme Court seat, and will now face Democratic Superior Court Judge Maria McLaughlin in the general election.

In the competitive Democratic Superior Court primary, Pittsburgh civil litigator Jill Beck and Philadelphia Common Pleas Judge Timika Lane were handily beating commercial lawyer Bryan Neft, of Mt. Lebanon. Lane had a narrow lead.

The winner will face former Deputy Attorney General Megan Sullivan.

And in the Democratic primary race for two open Commonwealth Court seats, Philadelphia Common Pleas Judge Lori Dumas, Allegheny County Common Pleas Judge David Spurgeon, and former Allegheny County Council member Amanda Green-Hawkins were all neck-and-neck.

Two of them will face Republicans Drew Crompton and Stacy Wallace
