Wilton state senator exploring run for governor

NAUGATUCK, Conn. (AP) Wilton state Sen. Toni Boucher is the latest Republican considering a possible run for governor in 2014.

The lawmaker announced Tuesday she filed paperwork to form an exploratory committee. She made the announcement in Naugatuck, where she grew up after emigrating from Italy.

Earlier this month, Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton announced he was also exploring a possible gubernatorial campaign. Senate Minority Leader John McKinney of Fairfield has already said he plans to seek the Republican nomination and ultimately challenge Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, who has not yet said whether he plans to seek a second term.

Greenwich businessman Tom Foley has said he hasn't decided whether to run again.

Boucher has served in the Senate since 2009. She previously served 12 years in the House of Representatives.
