Herbst Running for State Treasurer.

That didn’t take long. Trumbull First Selectman Tim Herbst is done exploring. The Fairfield County Republican, just off a convincing re-election bid, is a candidate for state treasurer. Democratic incumbent Denise Nappier, who has known some tumultuous times, is seeking a fifth term.

Herbst will seek to raise $75,000 in contributions of no more than $100 each to qualify for public financing of primary and general election campaigns, should he move to those rounds. He may have competition for the party nomination when it gathers in convention in May.
