Tuesday morning Democratic gubernatorial candidate Ned Lamont and former Secretary of State Susan Bysiewicz made it official. They have united their campaigns with Susan running for Lt. Gov.
The State Democratic Convention is just three days away, and both Ned and Susan are probably hard at work and building consensus to try to ensure a first-round win among the delegates.
Lamont is the clear favorite going in, but Bysiewicz may have a formidable challenge with the likes of State Senator Gary Winfield and Newtown labor organizer Eva Bermudez possibly contesting her candidacy. In any state race, all you need to do to force a primary is collect 15% of the delegates. This may be the strategy intended by Bridgeport mayor Joe Ganim and others to secure a place on the ballot for the August primary.
