Hartford, Conn. (WTNH) – Reliable sources tell News Channel 8 that former Speaker of the House Jim Amann of Milford will formally end his campaign for Governor tomorrow in an announcement at the Hall of Flags at the State Capitol.I'll update with more information as it comes in.
Amann was the first to declare his intentions and surprised everyone by giving up the speakership to run.
His campaign has sputtered with funding and staffing issues.
UPDATE: I received an email Monday that went out to Jim Amann's e-list that advised his volunteers to take the entire President's Day weekend off to enjoy it with their families, and it also contained this line:
"We will resume volunteer duties on Saturday, February 20th unless otherwise notified."It didn't quite register at the time, but in retrospect, it seems like a hint of what may occur tomorrow.
