Is Nancy Wyman Running for Governor? A T-Shirt Website May Hold a Clue

Why is someone selling "I'm With Nancy Wyman" apparel, especially if the lieutenant governor is just planning a ride into retirement after 2018?

Connecticut’s political world is waiting with bated breath to see if Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman (D-Conn.), the number-one ally and partner to Gov. Dan Malloy (D-Conn.), will run for governor in 2018.

Wyman has been quiet as of late, blowing past a self-imposed deadline for deciding after the state passed its budget.

But there may be one clue out there that Wyman is running, and it comes, of all places, from a T-shirt website.

Popping up on the custom T-shirt website Teespring, for the first time on Tuesday, was the option to purchase “I’m With Nancy Wyman” apparel, from T-shirts to hoodies to mugs, and more.

It’s unclear who posted the apparel – it may just be a fan of Wyman.

It could also, though, be prep from someone in Wyman’s circle to have campaign apparel ready on day one of a potential, future campaign.

The “I’m With” theme is reminiscent of Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential campaign, which featured “I’m With Her” as one of many slogans.
