State Sen. Toni Boucher (R-26) confirmed her exploration Feb. 23 of a new exploratory committee for the governor\u2019s seat. \u201cLike many other good people are doing, I am exploring an exploratory due to increasing pressure from many different fronts and people,\u201d Boucher said in an email to The Wilton Bulletin. She said she has not filed her intentions. \u201cToo many budget issues in Hartford and do not want to complicate,\u201d Boucher said. Boucher spent seven months exploring a run for governor in 2013 and 2014. She ultimately did not run for governor. She continued for a fourth term in the state Senate. \u201cExploring a run for governor has been an extraordinary journey,\u201d she said at the time. Last time around, she said she was moved by the outpouring of support from across the 26th District, as well as the state, but she was unable to raise as much money as she thought necessary. \u201cTo be a viable candidate, you need about $80,000 to $85,000,\u201d she said at the time. \u201cMy goal was to reach $100,000,\u201d she said. Boucher had reported raising more than $66,000 as of Dec. 31, 2013.
