Shapiro Richards

As most suburban Philly politicos will have heard by now, County Commissioner Joe Hoeffel announced today that he won't run for re-election. The current Democratic ticket has State Rep. Josh Shapiro and Whitemarsh Township Supervisor Leslie Richards.

I think those decisions were made rather quickly. Why? There is a hastily compiled website at It links to Richards existing county commissioner campaign site. Shapiro's link is to his state rep campaign site. It this were something planned far in advance their website would look better the first day or so it was up. I can't find any information on when the URL was purchased. The logo is fairly basic (their last names in red with a blue star between them and their first names written in very small blue letters above the last names).

This will be an interesting race.

Thanks! I don't know why I couldn't find it -- must have made a typo.
