HARTFORD -

The Secretary of the State's office has begun counting up signatures collected by potential Connecticut gubernatorial candidates.

The office reported 381 signatures for Bridgeport Mayor Joe Ganim, who hopes to challenge Greenwich businessman Ned Lamont, the Democratic Party's endorsed candidate.

Ganim needs more than 15,000 signatures from registered Democrats.

He says he already has more than 20,000, but they all need to be verified.
