Courtney Opts Against Connecticut Senate Run

February 21, 2011

Rep. Joe Courtney (D-Conn.) announced Monday that he will not run for the seat being vacated by Sen. Joe Lieberman (I).

From Courtney's statement, per the New Haven Register: "I am truly grateful for the tremendous encouragement and enthusiastic support I have received from leaders across Connecticut as I have considered this question. I look forward to working with all of those who reached out to create a strong future for our state. After careful deliberation, however, I have decided to focus on my work as a Congressman and will decline to enter the race for the Democratic nomination for the U.S. Senate."

Rep. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) and former Connecticut Secretary of State Susan Bysiewicz (D) are already in the race, while on the Republican side, 2010 nominee Linda McMahon is considering running.
