HARTFORD, Conn. (CBS Connecticut) – Weeks after he announced he was considering a run for governor, Hartford Mayor Luke Bronin is forming an exploratory committee– moving one step closer to becoming a candidate. Bronin confirmed the move to WTIC News Thursday morning.
Bronin, a Democrat, used to work in the administration of Governor Dannel Malloy as general counsel and is a Yale Law School graduate and Rhodes Scholar.
Malloy announced earlier this year that he would not seek a third term.
