Vernon mayor to explore run for GOP senate nomination
Jason McCoy, the Republican mayor of Vernon, announced today he will pass up a re-election try this fall to focus on an exploratory campaign for U.S. Senate in 2012.
McCoy is a two-term mayor of Vernon, an east-of-the-river suburb of Hartford.
On the Democratic side, candidates are jumping into the race for the seat left open by Joe Lieberman’s decision not to seek a fifth term. Republicans are more cautious, waiting to see if the party’s 2010 nominee, Linda McMahon, is running. She spent $50 million on that race.
