MIDDLETOWN – On Tuesday, Jan. 18, former Connecticut Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission and the Secretary of the Senate to run for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Senator Joe Lieberman.
“I am running for the U.S. Senate for the same reason I first entered public service: because I want this state to be a better place for my children and yours,” Susan Bysiewicz said. “As I travel across this state listening to the people of Connecticut, I hear over and over that too many of our children have to leave our state because there aren’t enough opportunities here for them.”
“We need a Senator who is 100% focused on helping our state, and Senator Joe Lieberman has been focused on everything but Connecticut. I will only work for the people of Connecticut so we can create jobs that keep our children and grandchildren here in Connecticut for generations to come.”
Bysiewicz served as Connecticut Secretary of the State from 1999 until 2011, after serving in the Connecticut House of Representatives since 1992.
Senator Joe Lieberman called a press conference for Wednesday, Jan. 19 to announce his decision whether or not to run in the 2012 election.
