Rep. Jim Himes dismissed the idea of running for governor on Tuesday.

“I’m feeling like I’ve got a reasonably good day job, and I’m not looking to get another one,” Mr. Himes, Connecticut Democrat, said on MSNBC,

“It’s way too early for that,” he said. “I’m not thinking about it.”

Mr. Himes is seen as a moderate Democrat who has said the party needs to be more open to candidates who fit their states’ values, even if they are not the most progressive of the Democratic Party.

The state’s current Gov. Dannel Malloy announced last month he will not run for another term.
