State Rep. Bill Hamzy just issued a statement saying he will not run for attorney general. Here's what he sent me:
After alot of deliberation as well as conversations with family and friends, I have decided not to run for Attorney General. Frankly, I am flattered that people thought enough of me to encourage me to consider this race. The feedback and support that has been expressed by many, many people is very much appreciated. As a person who has continuously practiced law in Bristol for the past 17 years representing individuals from all walks of life, I would thoroughly enjoy being the attorney who represents the people of the State of Connecticut.
However, the realities of running a statewide campaign, practicing law full-time, responsibly representing the people of the 78th District while trying to be father to my children and a husband to my wife outweigh a campaign to be Attorney General. I would like to again sincerely thank all of those people who offered their support. It does mean alot to me and my family.
