Former secretary of state drops out of race for CT governor

HARTFORD, Conn. (WFSB) — Another candidate for the race for governor is dropping out.

Sources told Channel 3 that Susan Bysiewicz has dropped out of the race.

She will now be Ned Lamont’s running mate.

In April, she made it official by announcing she was running for governor.

She was the only candidate from either party to have won a statewide election, serving as secretary of the state.
