9 this, I think.

10 BY MR. GERSTEN:

11 Q Now, as you sit here today, ma'am, after you

12 wrote this letter on January 15th, has anyone told you

13 from the attorney general's office or his client -- I

14 forgot that's your office, has anyone from your office

15 told you, we will not accept your name to be a

16 candidate for attorney general?

17 A No.

18 Q Has anyone from your office indicated that

19 your name would not be accepted as a nominee for

20 attorney general?

21 A My secretary of state office.

22 Q Yes, ma'am.

23 A Notice.

24 Q Has anyone indicated to you that if you were

25 to be nominated by the -- by the way you're not the

Brandon Smith Reporting

145

1 nominee by the democratic party are you?

2 A I'm not.

3 Q If anyone were to tell you that you were to

4 be the nominee for the democratic party, your name will

5 not be accepted by your office, Madam Secretary?

6 A No.

7 Q Is it your position that the secretary of

8 state has the authority to reject your name as a

9 candidate if you were nominated by the democratic

10 party?

11 A Yes.

12 Q And what's the basis for that?

13 A The precedent in the Searle Field case, where

14 Mr. Field wanted to run for attorney general and there

15 was an issue with respect to his qualifications because

16 he practiced only for six years in Connecticut.

17 Q And you're saying that your office would

18 reject your name as the nominee from the democratic

19 party in the event you obtain that nomination?
