2nd District 2008 race...

It appers the field of potential Republican challengers to U.S. Rep. Joe Courtney's, D-2nd District, re-election bid in 2008 will be growing.

Daniel Craig of Deep River, a former FEMA Regional Director, confirmed in a phone conversation this morning that he "still intends to run" for the GOP nomination. Sean Sullivan, the former Groton Submarine Base commander, confirmed Monday that he would be filing his paperwork with the FEC this week to set up his campaign committee and start raising money.

Sullivan plans to meet with National Republican Campaign Committee officials the first week of May. I confirmed this morning that Craig has already met with officials at the NRCC to discuss his candidacy.

Craig, who is working in Washington, DC these days, is expected to formally announce his intentions the week of April 23 after completing some business commmitments that will have him traveling this week and next.

I'm curious about Craig. Does he have any 2nd Dist connections? Where was he raised? go to high school? Also, does he have a family? He seems like kind of an enigma.
