Joe Hoeffel (left) -- who is distinguishable from the formerly frontrunning twins in the race for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination in that (a) he is from the vote-rich Philadelphia region and (b) he favors Democratic positions on issues -- has announced he will campaign for the nomination.
This creates a spirited race. Jack Wagner (right) has established statewide ballot strength (most recently, he outpolled Barack Obama), a strong personal story and a record relatively free of controversy, but little pizzazz and less cash. Dan Onorato (left) has formidable cash and a head start, but his candidacy appears to rely on execution of the legendary Triple Lindy (assessments, drink tax, G20).
The Propositions Board (far right column) has been adjusted accordingly.
