State Sen. LeBeau exploring run for Governor in 2010

He’s been rumored to be eyeing a bid for Governor in 2010 and on Tuesday state Sen. Gary LeBeau, D-East Hartford, plans to launch his exploratory committee during an event at Goodwin College.

The invitations went out earlier this evening.

LeBeau joins a field that already includes fellow explorers Dannel Malloy, the Mayor of Stamford and Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz; declared candidate and former House Speaker James Amann, D-Milford; and, if some Democrats have their way, ex-U.S. Senate candidate and still politically active Greenwich millionaire Ned Lamont, who has been kind of acting like he’s thinking about running.
