Item! The New York Post says that some Republicans are pushing former U.S. Attorney Kevin O’Connor to run for governor next year.
O’Connor would be an interesting candidate, but since it’s the Post, I’m a little dubious. But the blurb does mention the oft-repeated rumor that Jodi Rell isn’t going to run next year. Would O’Connor be a strong contender for the nomination, were that to happen?
And are these Republicans who are encouraging O’Connor to run doing so believing that Gov. Rell is not running? Or do they want him to force her out? Hmm.
