Uhm, Bragg won the NY DA Dem primary with 34% of the vote. He received a whopping 86,000 votes

There were 8 candidates. The person who came in second won 31% of the vote; the other 6 split the remainder.

None of the 8 candidates had a household name that would automatically carry them to victory. In each candidate's case, at least 66% of the voters did not support them.

The winner of the Democratic primary was going to win the general. That's how Bragg came to be elected.

Suspect in MoMA Stabbing Attack Nabbed at Philadelphia Bus Terminal

Source: nbcnewyork.com

The former Museum of Modern Art member accused of stabbing two employees when he was denied entry into the Manhattan facility over the weekend has been arrested in Philadelphia.

Gary Cabana, 60, was picked up at the Greyhound bus terminal sleeping on a bench early Tuesday, authorities said. Two senior NYPD officials with knowledge of the investigation said the apprehension came hours after firefighters responded to a report of a suspicious fire at a hotel, a Best Western Plus, on Vine Street in Philly.

The hotel receptionist called authorities to say a guest appeared to match Cabana's description. Philadelphia police canvassed the area and found Cabana on the bench, which was about a half-mile from the hotel, the NYPD officials said.

He spontaneously uttered, according to those officials, "I'm the guy you're looking for. I had a bad day."

He was apparently using social media to deny the gravity of the stabbing attack, describing it as a "poke poke poke wake-up call" and accusing staff of framing him.

Cabana is expected to extradited to New York following arraignment on arson charges in Philly.
