Sullivan to endorse DeStefano
This isn't a big surprise. The real question is whether or not Sullivan will join the DeStefano ticket.
From The Hartford Courant
Lt. Gov. Kevin B. Sullivan today intends to endorse New Haven Mayor John DeStefano Jr. for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination, giving DeStefano a campaign surrogate who occupies the office one floor above the governor.
Sullivan said Tuesday that he has not been invited to run with DeStefano as a candidate for lieutenant governor, nor has he decided how he would respond if offered the No. 2 spot.
"That is an open question to be continued, both by him and I," Sullivan said.
Sullivan is set to endorse DeStefano at noon in the Legislative Office Building. DeStefano is vying with Stamford Mayor Dannel P. Malloy for the Democratic nomination, a fight unlikely to be settled before a primary in August.
