He already changed the title of his website ChrisMurphy.com to Chris Murphy for Senate.

Today Chris Murphy posted a clip on Youtube thanking everyone who emailed and tweeted his new campaign for this period of time offering their help for it. He urged Connecticut residents to keep in touch with his campaign and promised them opportunities to get involved in a variety of ways – from volunteering to advising on issues, even making a contribution to his campaign. Chris Murphy is not the first Democrat to have announced his bid for Senator Lieberman’s seat in the 2012 elections. Former Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz said just a few days ago that she is also running for this office. Yesterday, Ms. Bysiewicz said that she welcomes U.S. Representative Murphy to the race for the party nomination.

Meanwhile, on the Republican side of the race things are quiet, although some expect that Linda McMahon might make another bid to represent Connecticut in the Senate. McMahon lost her 2010 elections bid to then state Attorney General Richard Blumenthal.
