Former senate candidate Democrat Lee Whitnum is running for governor. The often ostracized attorney from Greenwich announced on her website she is seeking the Democratic nomination for governor, and as of today, is the only declared Democrat in the race. Governor Malloy, who sought a court order against Whitnum a while back, has not officially declared his plans for re-election.
Whitnum is known for her harsh criticism of U.S. policy towards Israel, and the numerous lawsuits she has filed. She’s been essentially disowned my many in her party, including chairwoman Nancy DiNardo.
