Peduto and the Custard Class

Ward-by-ward, the Angry Drunk Bureaucrat has put together the foundation of some interesting analysis of the Democratic primary in Pittsburgh mayor's race. The bottom line is that Bill Peduto ran well where you might expect: Shadyside, Point Breeze, North Point Breeze, Friendship, Squirrel Hill (ADB calls this trio "The People's Republic of the 14th Ward"), Southside, Mexican War Streets, and Highland Park. Lamb had a few strongholds, and O'Connor carried the rest.

Also following ADB's comment on the last post: Let's call Peduto's wards the domain of the Custard Class. If Peduto was well-organized but under-financed -- and that's not giving anything away -- then the question is: If the Custard Class wants Pittsburgh as a whole to move toward CC's vision of the future, is the CC willing to put its money where its mouth is?
