HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) Connecticut Attorney General George Jepsen has announced he's seeking a second term.

Jepsen, a Democrat, told reporters on Monday he's had a ``terrific three plus years'' advocating on consumer issues and representing the state in court.

He said he believes he can quickly raise the $75,000 in individual donations that would qualify him for public financing.

Jepsen, who was accompanied by his wife, Diana, at a news conference at the Capitol, said his biggest accomplishment was his high-level participation in a $26 billion national settlement over mortgage foreclosures. In Connecticut, $650 million benefited more than 6,000 homeowners who faced foreclosures and other financial problems.

Southbury lawyer Kie Westby is seeking the Republican nomination for attorney general. In announcing his candidacy in March, he said he wants to limit the power and size of government.
