Montco: Hoeffel OUT of Race!
Not much in the story from the Times-Herald, as this is relatively fresh & breaking.
Montgomery County Commissioners Vice Chairman Joe Hoeffel has announced that he will not seek re-election.
State Rep. Josh Shapiro, D-153 Dist., has entered into the race with Leslie Richards, a current Whitemarsh Township supervisor.
I cannot imagine that perpetual candidate for offices Joe Hoeffel will just fade away into the darkness.
You may remember he got an appointment from Ed Rendell in return for dropping out of the Lt Gov race in 2006. He has no such patron in the state government anymore… maybe he’s headed for a federal appointment of some kind.
The Montco Dems, Hoeffel included, were early Hillary supporters in 2008, so perhaps not.
