Connecticut is having their first ever transgender candidate enter the governors race for 2018.

FOX's Jim MacKay reports:

Democrat Jacey Wyatt, a business woman from Branford, Connecticut, could be the first ever transgendered candidate for governor in the state. She told a local public affairs show in Hartford over the weekend that she's a political outsider and can bring a new perspective and fresh ideas.

She also said her bid for office is not going to be all about her gender. Jacey Wyatt was born a man, but transitioned into a woman. She's 46-years-old, has been a selectwoman and officially has filed her papers to run.

Current governor Dannel Malloy hasn't said wether or not he plans to run for re-election in 2018.
