Connecticut: Clifford Thornton, Green, first black man to run for gov from established party

From the Stamford Advocate May 29 2006 ....Clifford Thornton Jr. doesn't mince words -- he knows his Connecticut Green Party candidacy for governor has little chance.
But Thornton, 61, hopes his campaign will spur discussion on the war, on drugs and on related issues of race and class..... Thornton is the first black man to run for governor from an established party in Connecticut....
