The Connecticut Democratic Party-endorsed candidate for governor, Ned Lamont, is once again having to deal with an issue that first came up in 2006 during his unsuccessful campaign to unseat former U.S. Senator Joe Lieberman. The issue was raised at a Democratic gubernatorial forum at the Varick Memorial AME Zion Church in New Haven Sunday.

Joe Ganim made a stunning return to politics in 2015, when he was elected mayor of Connecticut's largest city after serving seven years in prison for corruption during his first tenure as Bridgeport's leader.

Now the Democrat is knocking on doors and greeting people in cars and on the streets in Bridgeport and other cities, hoping to pull off another improbable and even bigger victory—becoming Connecticut's next governor.
