Description"In the hard-fought primaries for the 13th Congressional District, Democratic State Sen. Allyson Schwartz narrowly defeated Joseph Torsella yesterday, while in the GOP race, Melissa Brown beat Al Taubenberger and State Rep. Ellen Bard.

Brown, 53, an ophthalmologist who nearly unseated U.S. Rep. Joseph Hoeffel in 2002, locked up her second consecutive GOP nomination. Schwartz, a 14-year veteran of the state Senate, vowed to "fight to get things done" in Washington.

"We did it. Together we've taken the first step toward victory in November," Schwartz told her supporters at a union hall in Plymouth Meeting just before midnight. "It's time to start working for regular people again."

The stage is thus set for a November showdown between Schwartz and Brown for the district encompassing parts of Northeast Philadelphia and Montgomery County."
