Monday morning...

An interesting bit of news about Attorney General Richard Blumenthal over the weekend. It seems he has made a decision to go for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination in 2010. One of the criticism that Democrats have had of him in the past is that he's always waited too long to say what his plans are...thus creating a situation in the last two gubernatorial campaigns were candidates interested in making a bid had to sit and wait, or pull out of the race because they were having trouble raising money because no one knew sure where Blumenthal would play.

Well...that doesn't appear to be the situation this time with a very clear, and very early decision.

Ray - Are you sure that The AG has made the decision or is it Kevin Rennie trying to stir the pot?

Maybe a little bit of both.

There's no doubt that Blumenthal as certainly looked at new opportunities, but always pulling out late in the game - much to the dismay of fellow Democrats who wish he's simply make up his mind. And I think he is also well aware of those feelings - so I would be surprised if he shared with Rennie his feeling towards make a bid in 2010 - if for no other reason, a chance to pre-empt others who might also be considering the move.

I hear he is going to sue all his opponents rather than run against them.

Once he wins his lawsuits, he can run unopposed.

That is after all the only thing he knows how to do...

Blumenthal usually only bets on sure things which is a pretty good political strategy. As we get closer to 2010 and it's looking like he'll win hands down, my guess is he'll stay in and will win.
