Now the three term State Rep. had to fend off a challenge from Coles. She even lost the Democratic support in her own hometown.
But none of that mattered as the first woman and African American to hold the seat once again fended off a primary challenger.
With 99% of precincts in, Davidson won 54% of the vote to Coles’ 46% (5,139 votes to 4,436 votes). She will face Inderjit Singh Baines in the general election.
The 164th District includes East Lansdowne, Lansdowne, Milbourne and parts of Upper Darby and Yeadon.
