It was a busy year for the nearly two dozen people interested in being Connecticut’s next governor. All of the declared and exploratory candidates pictured above appeared on Face the State to talk about their plans. Democrat Chris Mattei has since decided to run for Attorney General. I made every effort to include Republican candidate David Stemerman, but he has not returned my calls inviting him to appear on the program.
That question mark could represent another candidate, maybe two or more. 2018 could bring some additional faces to the collage above, including House minority leader Themis Klarides and 2010 gubernatorial candidate Ned Lamont. New Britain Mayor Erin Stewart also expressed some interest, but sources say she may run for lieutenant governor.
Who do you like for our next governor?
