U.S. Attorney Kevin O’Connor has asked not to be on the list of potential Republican candidates for lieutenant governor, according to source close to O’Connor.
The source said O’Connor, a Republican, has asked the campaign of Gov. M. Jodi Rell not to put him on the ticket for the 2006 election.
O’Connor, who has prosecuted a string of public corruption cases in the state, has been one of a handful of Republicans consistently mentioned to be in the running for the number two spot on the Republican ticket. (Lucas)
Huh. I wonder why?
The story also mentions the sorts of GOP Lt. Gov. possibilities we've been kicking around here for months, although I don't think Ward is a serious choice.
I have a feeling we'll find out early on the day of the convention--and it'll be someone we've never heard of.
