Jonathan W. Pelto, a Connecticut legislator between 1984 and 1994, has begun petitioning to get himself on the Connecticut ballot as the Education & Democracy Party nominee for Governor. See this story. Pelto was Political Director of the Connecticut Democratic Party in 1990.
The only states that are having gubernatorial elections this year, and which definitely won’t have any minor party or independent candidates for Governor on the November ballot, are Alabama, California, and New Mexico. Thanks to Timothy McKee for the link.
