Field Thins In Governor Contest As Luke Bronin Drops Out

Apr 18, 2018

The crowded race for governor finally began to narrow this week as Hartford Mayor Luke Bronin announced he is abandoning his bid to be the Democratic Party's nominee.

Today we discuss the factors leading up to Bronin's decision, factors that include his role in securing a massive state bailout of Hartford city debt that some state lawmakers are now rallying to undo.

Also we contemplate who will be the next candidate to drop out of the governor's race, and why there's such a general lack of diversity among those running for governor and other statewide offices in Connecticut this year.
