Pennsylvania: Ex-Rep. Hoeffel To Run For Governor

Former Pennsylvania Rep. Joseph M. Hoeffel is joining what has become a very crowded 2010 Democratic primary for governor.

Hoeffel, who is an elected commissioner in Montgomery County near Philadelphia, on Sunday told the Pennsylvania political blog pa2010.com, “I do intend to run. I’m going to move forward aggressively. I’m in the race and ready to ride.”

Hoeffel represented Pennsylvania’s 13th District in the House from 1999 through 2004, when he
was the losing Democratic nominee for Senate against then-Republican incumbent Arlen Specter.
