Boughton is latest to open exploratory for 2018

One thing Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton’s learned in two prior runs for governor: You can’t begin too soon to start raising the $250,000 in individual contributions of no more than $100 to qualify for public financing of about $6.5 million. Boughton, who failed in 2010 and 2014 to hit $250,000, created an exploratory committee Tuesday and launched a fundraising web site: the Connecticut Comeback Committee.
