The word on the street is that Bob Hart (D) is being seriously considered by local Democrats to replace Mike Gerber (D) on the ballot for State Rep for the 148th District in the the November election. Hart is currently a Township Supervisor in Whitemarsh. As we reported last week, Gerber withdrew from the race to take a position in the private sector.
Gerber was to face Conshohocken native and veteran Mike Ludwig. After Gerber’s withdrawal, Ludwig issued a statement to MoreThanTheCurve.com stating:
I wish Mike Gerber the best of luck with his new endeavors, and I look forward to pushing ahead with the campaign and hopefully representing the people of the 148th District.
Rumors from the local Democrats also point to someone from the Main Line also potentially replacing Gerber.
Keep you posted.
