Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy says he doesn’t expect to announce his re-election plans until after the General Assembly adjourns.
The Democrat said Tuesday he didn’t “imagine…being a candidate any time before the session is over.” Malloy added how he’d “like to get through the session as governor as opposed to candidate.”
This year’s legislative session is scheduled to adjourn on May 7. The Connecticut Democrats have scheduled their nominating convention for May 16 at the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford. That’s when the party will endorse candidates for governor, lieutenant governor, secretary of the state, treasurer, comptroller and attorney general.
Malloy is widely expected to seek a second term.
Several Republicans have already announced they’re seeking the GOP nomination at the party’s convention on May 16-17.
