Third Republican Candidate For SOTS?

Meriden Record Journal: Farrell likely to seek Secretary of the State position <read>

Jerry Farrell Jr. seems to have received the support of his fellow Republicans, both locally and on the state level, as he makes his first push for a statewide elected position.

Farrell, who has served as a Republican member of the Wallingford Town Council since 1995 and was appointed commissioner of the state Department of Consumer Protection by Gov. M. Jodi Rell in 2006, announced Tuesday that he intends to run for a statewide office this November, but would not say which one.

Farrell has scheduled a press conference, 3 p.m., Jan. 19 at Component Engineers in Wallingford, to officially announce what position he will seek, but a number of sources, both locally and statewide, hinted Wednesday that he would announce a run at the position of Secretary of the State.
