Tom Knox Has Our Backs

In case of emergency, Knox has switched party affiliations

If Milton Street somehow beats Michael Nutter in next month’s primary, we’re not totally screwed. Late last week, Tom Knox switched his party affiliation from Democratic to independent. “Just in the case of the long-shot that Milton Street beats Michael Nutter, I will then run,” Knox, a Nutter supporter, said. Meanwhile, former mayor John Street also switched to independent, which could be a sign that this election is about to get even weirder. [Philly Clout]
