Harris will announce full bid for governor
Jonathan Harris, a West Hartford lawyer who has been exploring a run for higher office, will transition to a full-on campaign for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination.
Harris on Friday morning released a statement scheduling a Saturday campaign announcement. A source confirmed Friday afternoon that the former state senator, mayor of West Hartford, and commissioner of the state Department of Consumer Protection, will announce his intention to seek the top-line party nomination.
His announcement is scheduled for 11:00 a.m. in the Town Center, 29 South Main Street, West Hartford. His campaign said on Friday that he has received more contributions of $100 or less, under the terms of the state’s public-financing program, than any other candidate.
