In a short, emotional speech this evening, Gov. Jodi Rell announced her intention to seek her own term as governor.
She seemed at times overcome with emotion, and at other times seemed very uncomfortable. She didn't present anything in the way of new plans or details, but did list some of her accomplishments over the past year and a half.
She took some time to attack the Democratic candidates for "seeing the worst in Connecticut" and for generally being too negative.
I'll have a more detailed analysis tonight or tomorrow. For now, the governor's staff has been quick to get her website up: www.jodirell06.com. This was password protected earlier today, and "under construction" yesterday. It's a bio, a welcome letter and a contribution page. That's it so far.
