Attorney George Jepsen told WTIC 1080 AM Monday that he will file the paperwork to run for a second term later today.
He’s the last current constitutional officer to announce his re-election campaign. So far Kie Westby, a former U.S. Senate candidate from Thomaston, is the only Republican vying for the office.
In an interview Monday afternoon at the state Capitol, Jepsen said he waited so long to get into the race because “the longer I’m functioning as a 24/7 attorney general, as opposed to being distracted by a campaign the better.”
Jepsen, who is using the public campaign system, will have to raise $75,000 in contributions under $100 in order to qualify for the $750,000.
