State Attorney General George Jepsen’s (D) decision not to seek reelection “gives those who might otherwise run for governor an attractive alternative.” Former federal prosecutor Chris Mattei (D) “sidestepped the subject in a statement Monday.”

Mattei: “Although his decision may fuel speculation among some, today is a day to honor George’s service.” (Connecticut Post)

“Another potential Democratic candidate, former Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz, has launched an exploratory bid for state senate and is also considering a run for governor.” (Hartford Courant)

Gov. Dannel Malloy (D): “Some number of the 35 or 60 running for governor will probably decide to run for attorney general.” (Connecticut Mirror)
