Erickson's retirement sparks interest among candidates
Since then, a couple of names of potential Republican candidates have been floated around.
Some of those Republican names include county council Chairman Tom McGarrigle of Springfield, state Rep. Nick Miccarelli, R-162, of Ridley Park, county Executive Director Marianne Grace of Upper Darby and state Rep. Joe Hackett, R-161, of Ridley Township.
Top Republican officials said it's too early to discuss who the endorsed candidate will be. It makes me wonder if there could potentially be a Republican primary race next year.
On the Democratic side, Ridley Township resident John Kane, business manager for Plumbers Union Local 690, is eyeing the seat. Dems view this seat as a pickup opportunity.
UPDATE: A fifth Republican name, Kelly Colvin, surfaced Tuesday.
