Connecticut Senate: Chris Murphy Will Run

Representative Chris Murphy (D-CT) “announced his candidacy for Senate today, becoming the second Democrat to run for retiring Sen. Joe Lieberman’s Connecticut seat and setting up the first of what are expected to be many high-profile Senate primaries in 2012,” the Washington Post reports.

"I’ve decided to run for the United States Senate in 2012 because I believe that I can be a stronger voice for the issues that matter to Connecticut, like creating good jobs and ending these costly wars, in the Senate," Murphy said in a statement released this morning.

Murphy joins “former Secretary of State Susan Bysiewicz, who launched her campaign Tuesday, in the Democratic primary.”
