PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A civil rights lawyer poised to become Philadelphia's next district attorney is reaching out to reassure office prosecutors about his agenda after winning the all-important Democratic primary. "It's going to be a really interesting race", said former district attorney Lynne Abraham, who served from 1991 to 2010, and aggressively sought the death penalty in hundreds of murder cases.

"I wish to congratulate Larry Krasner and Beth Grossman on their primary victories". "When you have more people in jail than any country in the world, that's a problem". Williams, who became the city's first black district attorney in 2010, backed alternative courts for veterans and drug offenders but took a moderate stance amid a Supreme Court order to resentence 300 juveniles from Philadelphia serving life without parole.

Krasner will face Beth Grossman, the lone Republican on the ballot, in the general election in November. Seven are Democrats seeking to succeed two-term Democrat Seth Williams, who goes on trial next month in a federal bribery case.

Before launching her campaign, Rhynhart was chief administrative officer under Mayor Jim Kenney and previously city treasurer and budget director under former Mayor Michael Nutter.

In his statement, the mayor thanked Butkovitz for his service and noted that in his experience with Ryhnhart, he believes that she can help make the city "more efficient and effective".
