Fitzgerald may run again

Republican Jill Fitzgerald may take another shot at winning the 77th District state House seat.
Fitzgerald said this morning she is "think about it" and will likely make a decision within a few weeks.
Two years ago, Fitzgerald lost a contest for the open seat in northeastern Bristol to Democratic newcomer Chris Wright, who is seeking a second term this year.
This time around, Democrats are unlikely to have the same sort of groundswell of support that stunned GOP candidates in 2008, which could make Wright's reelection anything but certain.
Fitzgerald said she hopes to make a choice about whether to run as soon as March 8, though it could take longer.
The Republicans haven't yet come up with another candidate to challenge Wright.

To all the idiots on here that think Art Mocabee is involved with anything is very miss lead. Do your homework before you speak.

Do your home work! Why don't you practice what you speak? You nasty pea brained person.

Unlike 2008, 2010 may be a good year for Republicans. And she did proportionally better than most other Republicans in Connecticut in 2008

I think she deserves another shot.

She has to run again. We can't take another session with Wright in the seat.

Jill runs agin, she loses again.

The Party, and Jill, have done nothing to set the stage for a victory.

Jill would make a fine Rep. its time for new blood with visioned and bold leadership. Say no to Wright and "One Term" Burns.

Just what would Jill bring to the table?

Does she have any awareness, other than what state Central feeds her?
