Pedro Espinal won the Democratic Primary for Providence City Council Ward 10. He defeated Monica Huertas, Orlando Correa and Natalia Rosa Sosa in a low turnout race in which less than 900 people voted.

As we wait for a statement from Espinal, here’s something from from Jennifer Rourke, Rhode Island Political Cooperative Co-Chair:

“The Rhode Island Political Cooperative was proud to fight for and with Monica Huertas. Monica’s campaign was about solving the problems people in her community are facing – making  sure they have affordable housing, a living wage and good schools for their children. Those are the things Monica has always fought for and will continue to fight for.”

Espinal must next face Jeffrey Lemire in a General election on November 5.
