DA Shane Scanlon reacts to his primary loss


Lackawanna County District Attorney Shane Scanlon lost Tuesday's primary election to former co-worker Eugene Talerico.

Supporters gathered at the Ramada Inn in Clarks Summit to wait for the results to come in.

Scanlon arrived after Talerico addressed supporters at his own watch party in Scranton.

"I am disappointed, he said.

"I have many gifts in my life. This is a bump in the road."

When asked if he had thought about why he lost, Scanlon said, "I really haven't thought about it much. That's what the next few days will be for."
