Martha Dean Enters Race for Governor

By Mark Pazniokas

Martha Dean, a favorite of tea-party activists and gun owners, announced today she is running for governor, giving the Republican field of a half-dozen candidates its only woman and its strongest conservative contender. Image

Dean declined to discuss her campaign in detail until March 18, when she holds her first press conference as a candidate, but she said she intends to reach beyond gun rights and the tea-party issues of small government.

“My following goes way beyond those groups,” Dean told The Mirror. Her announcement Tuesday was an acknowledgement that she already is reaching out to groups for support, making it likely that word of her candidacy would begin to leak, she said.

Dean, 54, of Avon, was the Republican nominee for attorney general in 2010, losing to Democrat George Jepsen.
