Glastonbury Republican Matthew Daly (formerly of Hebron) has announced that he’s going to run against Joe Courtney in 2010.
Daly spearheaded the “vote yes” to a constitutional convention campaign last fall. He ran for the state senate in 2006 on a platform of repealing the income tax and opposition to abortion and gay marriage.
If he is the nominee, it’ll be the first time in recent memory that the 2nd district won’t have a candidate from southeastern Connecticut running (Courtney is from Vernon, Rob Simmons is from Stonington, and Sam Gejdenson was from Bozrah). Is this now a Greater Hartford seat?
