The 19-year-old brother of a slain Sandy Hook first grader says he plans run for the Connecticut Senate

NEWTOWN, Conn. -- The 19-year-old brother of a Sandy Hook school shooting victim and outspoken advocate for greater school safety measures says he's running for the Connecticut Senate.

Hwang has served in the Senate since 2015 and previously in the House of Representatives.

Lewis recently finished his freshman year at the University of Connecticut and says he's running for office to honor his late brother, Jesse Lewis, one of the 20 first graders killed in 2012.
