Gov. Malloy to Run for 2nd Term

ASSOCIATED PRESS

Gov. Dannel Malloy attended the White House correspondents dinner and an elected official is saying it violated ethics law because People magazine paid for the trip.

Gov. Dannel Malloy said today that he and Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman will run for a second term.

He made the announcement this morning at the Legislative Office Building.

Lee Whitnum, a former U.S. Senate and House candidate known for strongly criticizing U.S. ties with Israel, announced earlier this month that she plans to run for the seat.

A statewide Quinnipiac University poll done earlier this month shows Greenwich businessman Tom Foley has a large lead over his fellow GOP contenders.

He was the Republicans' 2010 gubernatorial candidate and Malloy narrowly defeated him.

Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton, a Republican, has announced he will run for governor.

State Senator John McKinney is another Republican candidate for governor and State Senator Toni Boucher is exploring a run for the top job.

Martha Dean, an attorney who helped gun rights advocates challenge the constitutionality of Connecticut's recent gun control law, also plans to run for governor.

This year's state Republican convention will be held from May 16 to 17.
