Lamont-Bysiewicz ticket expected shortly
I just heard that Democratic candidate Ned Lamont will likely announce Tuesday that former Secretary of State Susan Bysiewicz will be his choice for Lieutenant Governor.
This pairing creates a powerful team going into Friday's convention, and it will undoubtedly create some excitement.
The candidate for Lt. Gov. is selected separately from the gubernatorial candidate. But going into the convention as a unified ticket will probably make a contentious primary unlikely, and a Lamont/Bysiewicz team will almost definitely be a favorite to win in November.
Bysiewicz has significant backing from a large segment of the delegates, and her longtime experience in Hartford will be noted by the voters.
I'm very pleased with this development, as it certainly helps the Democrats ensure continued leadership in the Governor's office.
