Ribicoff Named by Democrats for Governorship of Connecticut

Former Rep. Abraham A. Ribicoff was named by the State Democratic convention yesterday as its candidate for Governor of Connecticut in the coming elections. Rep. Ribicoff, who was nominated by acclamation, will oppose Gov. John Lodge, whom the Republicans are expected to denominate next week.

Rep. Ribicoff was elected to two terms in Congress in 1948 and 1950. In 1952 he was defeated in a close race for Senator, although he led his ticket by some 100,000 votes. He has served in the State Legislature and as a judge.
