HARTFORD, Conn. – Sporting his signature green tie, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy announced Friday that he and Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman will seek a second term and run for re-election this November.
Malloy, who had been widely expected to run, made it official in response to a question during a routine press conference following a Friday state Bond Commission meeting.
“Nancy and I have talked about the race and we both reached a mutual conclusion that we should go to the people of Connecticut and ask them for their support to continue the work that we’ve been undertaking,” he said.
Although he had been expected to seek a second term, the governor had previously suggested he would wait until after the legislative session in May to announce. On Friday he said, despite the announcement, his approach to the session would not change and he would attempt to avoid being “dragged into the campaign” for as long as he could.
