Rell picks her new number two?

From the Danbury News-Times
Former state Rep. Michael Fedele of Stamford will be the Republican nominee for lieutenant governor, The News-Times has learned.

The matter is not official yet, but Gov. M. Jodi Rell is expected to make the formal announcement at a press conference Thursday.

Two high-ranking Republican officials, who requested their names not be used, said members of the Rell campaign staff told them Rell made her final decision last week.

Further, former state GOP chairman Richard Foley said reports of Rell's decision were solid.

"It's as much a certainty as there can be in politics," Foley said. "If you want guarantees in politics, buy a refrigerator. I had a conversation with someone of significance involved with the campaign this morning about it."

Fedele couldn't be reached for comment Monday.
