This past weekend the state Democratic organization made endorsements for state Superior and Commonwealth courts. Here are the results:
Final Endorsement Tallies for Superior Court
First Ballot: Robert Colville 93 votes, David Wecht 200 votes (Unofficial).
Robert Colville withdrew his candidacy and seconded the endorsement of David Wecht. No Second Ballot was cast. David Wecht won the Pennsylvania Democratic State Committee endorsement for Superior Court by acclamation.
Final Endorsement Tallies for Commonwealth Court
First Ballot: Kathryn Boockvar 191 votes, Barbara Ernsberger 62 votes, Todd Eagen 25 votes.
Since no candidate received 2/3 of the vote on the first ballot, the lowest performing candidate, Todd Eagen, was removed from the ballot, and a second ballot was cast.
Second Ballot: Kathryn Boockvar 221 votes, Barbara Ernsberger 43 votes.
Kathryn Boockvar won the Pennsylvania Democratic State Committee endorsement for Commonwealth Court.
