Joe Hoeffel

From dKosopedia


Former Pennsylvania Congressman and 2004 Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate. Ran against incumbent Arlen Specter.

Hoeffel was first elected to represent Pennsylvania's 13th District in Congress in 1998, succeeding Republican Jon Fox. He was consistently more liberal than some of his Democratic colleagues in the Pennsylvania delegation, such as Robert Borski, Frank Mascara, John Murtha, Paul Kanjorski, and Tim Holden. In 2002 Hoeffel's district north of Philadelphia was combined with Borski's due to a Republican redistricting plan, setting up a potentially nasty primary between the two. Borski, however, chose to step aside after 10 terms (20 years) in the House, and Hoeffel easily won the new 13th District in November. He served out his third term, but vacated his seat in 2004 to challenge Senator Arlen Specter. He lost the race 53% to 41%.
