DANBURY, Conn. (AP) - Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton is the latest Republican to announce whether he officially plans to run for governor in 2014.

Boughton was scheduled to meet with the media Wednesday at the Holiday Inn Danbury.

The Republican Party's 2010 nominee for lieutenant governor, Boughton announced in August he had formed a committee to explore a possible run for governor. He said he wanted to spend several months "testing the waters" before deciding.

Boughton is expected to announce he will switch his exploratory committee over to a candidate committee and seek the party's endorsement at the May convention.

A former state representative, Boughton won re-election as mayor in a landslide back in November, garnering 70.5 percent of the vote.

Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has not yet announced whether he'll seek re-election.
