HARTFORD, Conn. – Nancy DiNardo, the long-time chairwoman of the state Democratic Party, will not return to the position next year and will instead run for the party’s vice chair position. DiNardo has endorsed Vice Chair Nick Balletto to succeed her.

DiNardo’s decision to step down comes after a 10-year tenure as party chair. The party will elect its new leadership in January. In a Friday email to state central committee members, DiNardo said she was proud of the party’s work.

“Year after year, we’ve had extraordinary local, state and federal election successes. Together, with our great candidates, we’ve put Connecticut on the national map and remain the bluest state in the country after all these tough midterm elections,” she wrote.

    Yes CT may be the bluest state on the map but few Democrats would claim our governance over the past decade is nationally admired. Many, I suspect, like myself are frankly embarrassed at such continuing fiscal incompetence. And we have the indicators – exiting jobs and firms and population – to prove the point. But who are listening ? Even our admired President Obama is challenged yo pull a CT a Democrat into a leadership in his position. We are just the Junior Varsity.
