Lackawanna County Judicial candidateJames Gibbons wins primary

A district magistrate from the Abingtons virtually assured he will become a Lackawanna County judge after capturing both the Democratic and Republican nominations in Tuesday's primary.

With 93 percent of precincts reporting Tuesday night, Magisterial District Judge James Gibbons seized the most Democratic and Republican votes in the race, totalling 15,202 of the 40,183 votes cast and catapulting him over four other candidates vying to become the newest member of the county bench.

Since all of the candidates cross-filed as Republicans and Democrats, the primary could have seen one candidate pick up the Republican nomination and another candidate collar the Democratic nomination, setting up a competitive general election.
