Connecticut Gov. Jodi Rell sounds as though she's seriously thinking about passing on a 2010 reelection bid, a move that would give Democrats a good chance to win their first gubernatorial race in the Nutmeg State since 1986. From the New York Times:
BEFORE Gov. M. Jodi Rell decides whether to run for another term in 2010, she wants to see what happens in November's state and national elections, she said in a recent interview.
Mrs. Rell, a Republican, said the outcome of the fall elections was important because she wants to know whether she will once again be confronted with an "overwhelming number" of Democrats in the General Assembly who could override her policies, and whether the next president will be someone "who understands states' rights."
"Are we going to be fighting every single battle for the next four years?" she wondered as she sat at a table in front of a fireplace in her second-floor office in the State Capitol. "I think it gives you pause."
