Conn. House Minority Leader Themis Klarides

Connecticut House Minority Leader Themis Klarides says she will not seek a 12th term in office. 

Klarides was first elected in 1998 to represent Derby, Woodbridge and Orange. She was the first woman to lead the Republican members of the Connecticut House. 

Klarides says her decision was based on a combination of personal and professional considerations. 

Democratic House Speaker Joe Aresimowicz and Republican Senate Leader Len Fasano have already announced they're not running again.
