Kane leads Freed, 60%-38%

Published by Laura Olson on .

With a lead of more than 700,000 votes, Democrat Kathleen Kane has maintained her spot ahead of Republican David Freed in the attorney general's race all evening.

A strong showing in Philadelphia has helped to bolster those figures: about 2 million for Kane, 1.3 million for Freed with 65 percent reporting.

At Kane headquarters in Scranton, the crowd is still fairly small, with more expected to head over later from U.S. Sen. Bob Casey's victory party across the street.

Casey is speaking momentarily, with Kane expected to address her supporters soon after. Reports are coming in that Freed and Kane have spoken.

Gov. Tom Corbett visited Freed's election night party earlier this evening, and Freed could be seen thanking supporters at several points.
