Longtime state legislator Toni Boucher is announcing she is forming an exploratory committee for a run for govenor.

Boucher, a Republican state senator from Wilton, made the announcement this morning in Naugatuck, where she grew up.

She says the policies of the current administration have left Connecticut last when it comes to the economy.  Boucher also says the state has one of the worst environments for business and dangerously unfunded pension liabilities.

Boucher joins what could be a crowded field headed toward the Republican nomination next year.

State Senate GOP Leader John McKinney has announced a run for the nod.

Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton recently announced an exploratory committee.

Tom Foley, the party’s standard-bearer in 2010, has not yet made an official announcement as to whether he’ll seek the nomination again.
