In some circles talk, reached a note above a whisper that Representative Dwight

Evans had his eyes on the Philadelphia prize.

The prize, the upcoming mayoral race, which would mean a primary battle between Evans, and his good friend incumbent Michael Nutter in the city they equally love.

To that elevated whisper Evan’s told Rock The Capital, “No, I am 1000 percent behind Michael Nutter. He has done a good job.”

And with that, Evans dispelled any thought of a showdown between himself, Nutter, and another potential political heavyweight.

State Senator Anthony Hardy Williams is seriously weighing his options. “I started

from nothing to actually listening.” Williams says the talk about a potential run has reached a fervent pitch.

“Its a combination of political and financial support (that has) become urgently aggressive,” said Williams.

Williams, who also counts himself as a friend of Nutter, says he will make a decision this month, definitely before the petitions come out in February.

Hardy clearly does not want to repeat the footsteps he took when he started to run for governor. That decision came just three months before Election day.

Why now? Williams says there are “issues I would like to see managed in a different way.” For starters, education, crime, and business, which, is enough to for Hardy to consider taking on his old pal.

Evans says he will continue to throw his weight and money behind Nutter, saying, “the man deserves to be re-elected.”
