Where We Vote: Dean And Jepsen Talk Lawsuit, Guns and God
Dean files Lawsuit against Jepsen, just days before the election
The already nasty race for Attorney General got nastier this week, with Martha Dean filing a suit over George Jepsen's eligibility for office.
It's the latest, weird chapter in a story that began with Richard Blumenthal’s decision to step aside after 20 years and run for Senate.
Susan Bysiewicz, the current Secretary of the State, abandoned her gubernatorial campaign to try and step into Blumenthal’s shoes – but a court ruled her ineligible for the position. In stepped Democrat George Jepsen, former state Senate majority leader and Democratic state chairman.
His challenger, Republican attorney Martha Dean has tea party support – and has openly talked about trying to reverse federal laws like the Obama administration’s health care reform.
