Pittsburgh votes out mayor in primary election

HARRISBURG, Pa. — Pittsburgh’s incumbent mayor conceded the primary election Tuesday to challenger Ed Gainey, who would become the city’s first Black chief executive if he wins the general election in November.

Bill Peduto, a Democrat, had been seeking a third term against three primary challengers but instead called to congratulate Gainey, a five-term state representative.

“Wishing him well,” Peduto tweeted late Tuesday.
