A county commissioner from the Philadelphia suburbs has won the Democratic nomination for Pennsylvania attorney general.

Montgomery County Commissioner Josh Shapiro defeated two prosecutors, Allegheny County District Attorney Stephen Zappala and Northampton County District Attorney John Morganelli, in Tuesday's primary election.

He'll take on the Republican victor, Sen. John Rafferty of Montgomery County, in the general election.

Shapiro and Rafferty are vying to succeed Democrat Kathleen Kane, who didn't seek re-election amid criminal charges that she unlawfully leaked grand jury information and then lied about it. Kane denies wrongdoing.
