Will Foley switch races, too?

On the heels of state Sen. Sam Caligiuri's switch from the U.S. Senate race to the race for the Republican nomination for the 5th District U.S. House seat currently held by Democratic Congressman Chris Murphy, the Hartford Courant reports today that former U.S. Ambassador Tom Foley is also considering dropping out of the Senate race.
After Republican Gov. M. Jodi Rell's surprise announcement that she won't seek re-election, Foley is considering moving over to the race for governor.
The Courant describes him as an immediate frontrunner, in part due to the tremendous personal fortune and fundraising prowess he could bring to the race. Other Republicans who've expressed an interest in running for governor include House Minority Leader Larry Cafero, state Sen. John McKinney and Lt. Gov. Michael Fedele.
