Meet The Democrats’ New Gubernatorial Frontrunner:

Convicted Felon Joe Ganim
With Dan Malloy’s Top Enabler Nancy Wyman announcing that she will not enter the race to succeed him in 2018, Democrats have their sights set on a new frontrunner: convicted felon Joe Ganim. The CT Post reports that Joe Ganim, the mayor of Bridgeport who served seven years behind bars after being convicted on corruption charges, is now being touted as “a candidate with a household name” that Democrats can get behind.

With all of the party’s top-tier candidates like Ted Kennedy Jr., George Jepsen, Wyman, and even Malloy too afraid to enter the race, their party is so desperate that they’re willing to pin their hopes on a convicted felon just so they can avoid being forced to run on the Democrat administration’s eight year record of failures.

 The CT Post reports:

 “Ted Kennedy Jr. said thanks, but no thanks.  Ditto for State Comptroller Kevin Lembo and now Lt Gov. Nancy Wyman, leaving Connecticut Democrats with a void of headliners willing to step forward to run for governor in 2018.

But the party in power appears poised to have its wish granted for a candidate with a household name — for better or worse. His name is Joe Ganim.

The mayor of the state’s largest city, Bridgeport, said Wyman’s decision to rule out a run puts him on the cusp of entering the wide open race. Since April, Ganim has been exploring statewide office, touting his efforts to bring jobs and development to his city while owning up to his 2003 corruption conviction that cost him the mayor’s office and his freedom for seven years.

“You should know that it does in fact move me closer toward ultimately making decision that could be a exploratory to a full announcement,” Ganim told Hearst Connecticut Media. ‘You said January and I didn’t disagree with you.’”
