State Sen. Ted Kennedy, Jr. (D-Branford), who originally said he was 90% sure he would enter the open Governor’s campaign next year, has now reversed course. Mr. Kennedy announced yesterday that he would not run, seemingly indicating that he will instead seek re-election to the legislature. Gov. Dan Malloy (D) previously announced that he will not seek a third term. In another surprising move, Attorney General George Jepsen (D) also said earlier that he will not run for the state’s top post. Six Democrats have announced, including the state Comptroller and two mayors. Nine Republicans are in the race, including several more mayors and state legislators.
