“Many Demo­crats be­lieve that Mont­gomery County Chair­man Josh Sha­piro (D) is a rising star in the Demo­crat­ic Party on the loc­al, state, and even na­tion­al levels,” but Sha­piro is stay­ing quiet about wheth­er he’ll chal­lenge Sen. Pat Toomey (R) or run for state at­tor­ney gen­er­al.

Sha­piro: “I ap­pre­ci­ate you reach­ing out, but I don’t have any com­ment at this time.”

Former Rep. Joe Ses­tak (D) is already run­ning for Toomey’s seat, but Mont­gomery County Demo­crat­ic Chair­man Mar­cel Groen said that “[t]here are some in the pary who do not have a lot of en­thu­si­asm for Joe’s can­did­acy.”

Groen: “There are a lot of Demo­crats who be­lieve that we can win that seat next year and that Josh gives us the best chance to do it.” (Bucks County In­tel­li­gen­cer)
