A new name could be joining the gubernatorial election. Former Gov. Richard Codey is close to make a decision on whether he will run, according to the AP. Codey was in Washington D.C. this week to try and secure funding for a potential run. According to the report, Codey was able to find backers that would kick in millions of dollars if he can win the Democratic primary. Senator Barbara Buono is the only Democrat in the race so far.
