Now there are seven people hoping to become secretary of the state.
Norwalk Town Clerk Andrew Garfunkel, 47, says he's running for the Democratic nomination.
Garfunkel, who has been town clerk since 2001, says he's filed paperwork with the state. He thinks his experience as town clerk makes him a better candidate than others running for this seat.
The race started heating up when Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz said she would not run for re-election because she's wants to run for state attorney general.
