With an open seat for the first time in 12 years, at least nine candidates are running to become Connecticut’s next Secretary of the State.
When three-term incumbent Denise Merrill announced that she was not seeking reelection, the scramble began on both sides of the political aisle because openings for statewide constitutional offices are relatively rare. A total of seven Democrats and two Republicans are interested in running for the job.
