The 2nd District 2008 race...

It looks like former Groton Submarine Base Commander Sean Sullivan has clear sailing for his bid to win the Republican nomination in next year's 2nd Congressional District race.

Former FEMA Regional Director Dan Craig of Deep River told me this afternoon that he will not enter the race, and as of right now, Sullivan appears to be the only GOP challenger in the hunt. Sullivan, 48, filed his candidacy papers with the FEC two weeks ago.

So it looks like it will be Sullivan versus freshman Democratic Congressman Joe Courtney doing battle next year. The Courtney folks declined comment on Craig's decision and the potential matchup with Sullivan. Sullivan was out of town today and unavailable for comment.
