DARIEN, Conn. (AP) - Jack Orchulli, a former fashion industry executive who unsuccessfully challenged former Connecticut Sen. Christopher Dodd in 2004, says he’s planning to run again for the U.S. Senate.
The Republican from Darien launched the “Jack Orchulli for U.S. Senate” Facebook page Tuesday. He announced plans to seek his party’s nomination, saying he’s “the only candidate with the experience and resources to beat the liberal Senator Richard Blumenthal.”
Orchulli is the former chief executive officer of the Michael Kors clothing label. He retired and sold his share of the company shortly before his 2004 campaign. At the time, he said he was fulfilling a lifelong goal of pursuing a political office.
This month, Bethel Rep. Dan Carter announced he’s seeking the GOP nomination, joining former Olympian and businessman August Wolf of Stamford.
