Apnewsbreak: Official: Lamont in Conn. Gov. Race

Friday, 12 Feb 2010 12:56 PM

 

A Connecticut Democratic official says Ned Lamont plans to officially announce his bid for governor.

The official told The Associated Press on Friday that Lamont will declare his candidacy on Tuesday at the Old State House in Hartford. That's the same location where he announced his Democratic primary challenge of U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman in 2006.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the campaign has not yet made the announcement.

Lamont won the 2006 primary against Lieberman, but Lieberman went on to win the general election as an independent.

The 56-year-old Greenwich businessman formed an exploratory committee in November and has said he's willing to spend his own money on the governor's race.

His campaign would not confirm Tuesday's announcement.
