Conn. attorney general hints at 2014 campaign

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut Attorney General George Jepsen has hinted he'll seek a second term next year, but would not discuss his plans.

He said on WFSB-TV's "Face the State" on Sunday it's premature to discuss whether he'll be a candidate in 2014. He says state campaign finance rules impose restrictions on what he can do if he becomes an official candidate.

But Jepsen says he's enjoying himself tremendously and can't imagine doing anything else in the short term.

He says an announcement will likely be early next year.

Jepsen, a former state Senate majority leader, defeated Republican Martha Dean in November 2010.
