Kane beats Murphy to win Democratic nod for AG

HARRISBURG, Pa. - Political newcomer Kathleen Kane is the Democratic nominee for Pennsylvania attorney general.

The former Lackawanna County prosecutor defeated former U.S. Rep. Patrick Murphy in Tuesday's primary election.

The two candidates waged a spirited campaign that was heavy on TV advertising.

Kane, 45, touted her nearly 13 years' experience as a prosecutor while reminding voters that Murphy has never tried a case in Pennsylvania courts.

Murphy, 38, of Bristol Twp., Bucks Co., stressed his five years in the U.S. Army Judge Advocate General Corps and asserted that he was the true Democrat in the race.

Kane relied heavily on her family's wealth to finance her campaign, while Murphy received help from major labor unions.
