Longshot Candidate First Republican In CT SEN

No, the first Republican to enter the race for retiring-Sen. Joe Lieberman's, ID-Conn., seat isn't Linda McMahon or former U.S. Comptroller General David Walker, but Brian K. Hill, a Hartford attorney and former active duty military officer who ran as an independent write-in candidate in 2010 and received only 559 votes.

Hill joined the Republican Party a few months ago, according to his spokesperson, Brian Hamel.

"I'm not a self-financed millionaire looking for something to do," Hill says in his announcement video, in what appears to be a veiled swipe at McMahon.

McMahon is still giving the race close consideration and Walker has generated some recent buzz.
