Nancy Wyman (b. Tolland, Connecticut) is the 88th and current Democratic Lieutenant Governor of Connecticut. She has served in this position since January 5, 2011. She first won election in 2010, on a ticket with Governor Dan Malloy (D).[1]

As lieutenant governor, Wyman is the second ranking officer of the executive branch, and the first officer in line to succeed the Governor of Connecticut. She serves as President of the Senate, has the right to debate in the committee of the whole and is also able to cast a tie-breaking vote. In the wake of Obamacare's enactment, Wyman is the first Connecticut lieutenant governor to take on the additional responsibility of chairing the board of directors of the Connecticut Health Insurance Exchange.[1]

In 1994, Wyman became the first woman in Connecticut history to be elected state comptroller.[1] She remained in that position for 16 years until assuming the lieutenant governor's office in 2011. Prior to joining the state's executive department as comptroller, Wyman served as a state representative from 1987 to 1995. An x-ray technician by trade, Wyman is also a former member of the Tolland Board of Education.[2]

Wyman is running for re-election in 2014 alongside 2010 running mate and current Gov. Dan Malloy.[3][4] She is seeking the Democratic nomination in the primary on August 12, 2014.[5][6] The general election takes place November 4, 2014.


Wyman is an x-ray technician. Before entering politics, she was a member of the Tolland Board of Education.[2] Her involvement in community service and other public serving organizations such as Mothers Against Drunk Driving, the National Kidney Foundation and the American Heart Association have shaped much of Wyman's life prior to, and during, her political career.

Wyman's past efforts to bring heath care to children around Connecticut contributed to the HUSKY health plan. This plan, according to her office bio, is still an "important source of medical care for more than 250,000 Connecticut children."[1]
