The first round of campaign filings for the Governor's race are in. It is an interesting list of donors for Hartford's mayor Luke Bronin.
Apparently Bronin will attempt to buy the Governor's Office the same as he did in purchasing the Mayor's Office in Hartford in 2016.
Not surprisingly, very little of Bronin's monetary support is coming from his Hartford constituents, but rather seems to be based in Fairfield County and out of State. Much of his donations are coming from New York City and as far west as San Francisco.
And on the Democratic side, if donations are any indication of viability, things look good for West Hartford's Jonathan Harris who has reportedly raised almost double Bronin's amount. Harris's campaign reported raising$232,745 to Bronin's $113,710. Even Susan Bysiewicz's low key exploratory run has out raised Bronin. "Friends of Susan" reported raising at $140,745.
Middletown's Mayor Dan Drew is a distant third at $91,111.
It makes me wonder where the checkbooks of those "hundred's of people" Luke claimed calling him urging him to get into the race are.
