LeBeau to Explore Gubernatorial Run

State Sen. Gary LeBeau is set to announce the formation of a gubernatorial exploratory committee next Tuesday at Goodwin College, according to a recent release. LeBeau, a Democrat from East Hartford, has been in the state senate since 1997, and was first elected to the House in 1990.

LeBeau, who in the past has proposed such interesting pieces of legislation as this legislative overhaul that would have created a small, unicameral legislature, says that he wants to bring a “fresh perspective” to the governor’s race.

Malloy Logo Echoes Obama

Does this logo look familiar? And note that the light blue stripe beats a straight path from Stamford to Hartford. In reality, he’d probably have to take the Merritt to 91, which is less direct.

    I remember the hit piece on Al Aldinolfi for his logo which was also inspired by Obama. I believe Gabe wrote it. Too bad he isn’t here anymore, I’d expect him to write a similar hit piece on Malloy – oh wait, Malloy is a Democrat.

    What sort of person would write a hit piece on an elderly honorable man with a record of public service one rarely sees?
    The answer that comes immediately to the forefront of your mind is correct.

    BTW – Does this look familiar?

  3. Gary LeBeau?

    For Governor?

    Of Connecticut?

    Oh, thank you so much. I was starting to think the Dems would only insult our intelligence three ways (Jimmy, Danny and Susie).

    I just knew they could do better than that if they really tried. Suddenly Amann looks like a statesman again.

  4. A fresh perspective, eh? Yeah, he’s only been in the state legislature or state senate for the past 18 years.

    This particular graphic design disease seems to be a full-fledged pandemic in both parties, and even in other countries.

    …and yet another democratic front runner…is anybody else wondering when Chris Caruso will announce his bid for Governor?

    Gary LeBeau? Seriously? I have a tough time thinking of a lesser Senate D option. Was Mary Anne Handley too busy to run or something?

    This is a guy who couldn’t handle a bus full of kids on a field trip. Now, we should trust him to run the state?

  8. HAHA LeBeau? Hasn’t he wasted enough of our money on multimillion dollar movie studios?

    Nice find Genghis. Looks like everyone is riding the Obama Train, at least its not a circle lol. The Stam-Hart line is pretty good if that’s what they intended, but your probably looking too deep into it.

  9. You can laugh all you want, but his philosophy is no different than the others running for office on the Dems side, so I don’t know what is so funny. He lacks name recognition, and might not be as polished, but the Dems are the ones who put Bill Curry up, not once, BUT TWICE!!!

    If he primaried Dodd, there’s a possibility he could win. But Dems are apparently happy with ethically challenged candidates while at the same time promoting ethics. Now that’s funny!! (or maybe really sad).

    I really don’t think it looks too similar.

    I spend countless hours every year making miniscule changes and dozens of slight of variations in hundreds of color combinations for logos. Frankly, I am not a big fan of the red, white and blue logos in general, but I think Malloy’s is well-done.
    I like the slight forward-lean of his name an the tight kern, but the shadow of the state and ever-so-slight stripes in the right hand corner are distracting and desolate. “Dan Malloy” looks disconnected from the Connecticut ‘logo.’ A logo, by the way, that there is not even close to enough money under CFR to make recognizable.

    My advice, Dan, drop everything to the left of your name.

  11. This is exactly the problem with politics in Connecticut. You people care about a logo more than the issues! Of course to us it will look familiar because we are reading blogs and staying up on the politics, but to the average person, will they really notice or care? No! It’s a nice emblem — the map of the state with the American flag on it. Looks like a logo a politician should have. Every political sign ever made looks exactly the same! Who cares?!!

    All Malloy needs to do is show the everyday voter that he’s a legitimate contender, and I guess nice stationary helps.

    How about we talk POLITICS. Like how crazy LeBeau is going to take over the state

  12. Well, gee….

    What about Edith Prague? I’d like to see her run.

    Her bubbly personality and charm in and of itself would make Rell nervous.

    The joke is Jodi Rell, our accidental governor.

    And what ever happened to Odd Al Adinolfi? I kind of miss him.

  14. The joke is Jodi Rell, our accidental governor.

    Our “accidental” governor? You mean the one who blasted your mayor by a mere 28 points in 2006?

  15. I don’t think the logo looks similar at all.

    Adinolfi lost in 2008 to State Rep. Elizabeth Esty.

  16. Also, as a Democrat, I’m not particularly impressed by any of the statewide 2010 candidates so far. And Sen. LeBeau entering the governor’s race greatly brings down their average, IMO.
