Today Dan Malloy made an announcement that I was not surprised to hear.
He decided to NOT run again for governor.
Which pretty much leaves a wide open field for both parties to run next year.
I've been quietly hoping that Comptroller Kevin Lembo will be up for a run, and now is the time to put that into motion.
So far there hasn't been even a whisper of what he's going to do, obviously out of respect for the Governor. But now Lembo has a golden opportunity to step up and be the person to take over.
I produced a campaign video for Kevin Lembo when he announced he was running for State Comptroller back in 2010. Previously he was the Connecticut Healthcare Advocate, and he helped people who were fighting the big insurance companies. Here's a look at the kind of person he was before he took on the second toughest job in Connecticut!
