According to the Inquirer’s Heard in the Hall blog, State Senator Anthony Williams emailed his supporters the details for the announcement of his candidacy on Wednesday.
Williams has been widely expected to run in next May’s primary.
In fact Anthony’s father, State Senator Hardy Williams ran for Mayor back in 1971.
At the moment, Sen. Williams’ announcement is scheduled the same day as former DA Lynne Abraham’s press conference to proclaim her candidacy. Terry Gillen and Ken Trujillo have already entered the race.
Among those suspected of possibly joining the fray are: City Controller Alan Butkovitz, Councilman Jim Kenney, former Councilman Frank Rizzo Jr., and City Council President Darrell Clarke.
