Capitol Report: Attorney General George Jepsen announces he will not run for office again

(WTNH)–Political observers saw a surprise from Attorney General George Jepsen this week, who announced that he will not run for a third term in office.

His decision caught more than a few off-guard.

“Next year I’ll be 64, and at 64, I’m still young enough to write a new and different chapter in my life, and I think those opportunities would be greater and more varied than if I made the same decision four years from now,” Jepsen said.
