HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — State Comptroller Kevin Lembo will not run for governor next year.

Instead, Lembo will seek a third term as comptroller.

The Democrat says he spent the last four months traveling the state exploring a run for governor, but figured out being comptroller is the best way for him to fight for health care and economic systems that work for everyone.
