For those people interested in seeing Ned Lamont take a shot at either the governor’s office or Chris Dodd’s U.S. Senate seat, prepare to be disappointed:
“This is the time for Connecticut to make the big changes that are so long overdue,” Lamont said. “We as a country and we as a state have consistently underestimated the scale of the issues and crisis in front of us.”
Lamont said he was not considering a run for either the governor’s seat or a senate seat. (Craven)
Lamont was giving a speech at Central Connecticut State University. He is not pleased with the governor’s budget proposal.
