(NECN) - State Rep. Marty Walsh was the first-place finisher in Tuesday's Boston mayoral preliminary election.

The celebrating at Walsh's campaign event went on until almost midnight - then he was up at 7 a.m. shaking hands again.

Walsh, who faces City Councilor John Connolly in the November election to succeed Mayor Tom Menino, says organized labor was a part of his campaign, but not the only part.

"We had 1,500 volunteers that were not part of organized labor, so that was also a big part of the campaign, and the fact that we had months of ID-ing votes and where they were was also another part of our campaign," he says.
