A local lawmaker is exploring a run for the U.S. Senate. Bethel State Representative Dan Carter plans to withdraw paperwork this week from the State Elections Enforcement Commission for his 2nd District campaign.
The 2nd House District includes parts of Bethel, Danbury and Newtown. Carter was seeking a 4th term. He is the Ranking Member of the legislature's General Law Committee and a member of the Education and Finance, Revenue and Bonding committees.
An official announcement about his potential run for higher office is expected in the coming weeks.
