Jepsen announces re-election bid

HARTFORD, Conn. – Attorney George Jepsen told WTIC 1080 AM Monday that he will file the paperwork to run for a second term later today.

He’s the last current constitutional officer to announce his re-election campaign. So far there are no Republicans vying for the seat.

The one-time head of the Democratic Party and former state Senator from Stamford told the radio station that his proudest accomplishment since taking office in 2011 was working on the national mortgage settlement—a three-year agreement reached in 2012 with attorneys general of 49 states, the federal government, and five mortgage servicers.

The settlement has provided more than $51 billion nationwide and $650 million to more than 6,700 Connecticut borrowers, who were in danger of losing their homes to foreclosure.
