Face the State

A Run for Governor for Jepsen?


Attorney General George Jepsen is working on his appeal of the recent school funding decision, and came in for a taping of Face the State to talk about it. We also talked about the unionization of assistant attorneys general, and as we like to do on this program, we ask about a guest’s future political plans.

We asked Jepsen, the Democrats’ choice for lieutenant governor in 1998, if he would like to run for governor, a decision that would depend on his friend Governor Malloy and whether he decides to go for a third term in 2018.

“I love my current job, but I don’t rule anything out.” 

We also talked about his support for Hillary Clinton. Many Democrats supporting Clinton have been asked the “honesty question,” and we put it to General Jepsen.

“Do you think she is honest?” “I think maybe she could have been a little more transparent.”

“Do you believe everything she says?” “Until proved otherwise.”
