In this Sunday’s Face the State flashback, we’ll take you back to September of 1997, when then Congresswoman Barbara Kennelly launched her campaign for governor. Kennelly was giving up a safe seat in Washington to take on the popular first term governor John Rowland, but first she had to get past 1994 Democratic nominee Bill Curry.

The report by Channel 3’s Jeff Cole from the archives shows the announcement made at the Old State House, comments from Kennelly, Curry and then GOP chairman Chris DePino.
