Tom Foley, the GOP’s candidate for governor in 2010 who nearly beat Dannel Malloy, might find a little more competition for the nomination next year.
Foley, running hard for the job again, told Dennis House during a taping of Face the State this week that he might have fared a little better if he had a female running mate instead of Mark Boughton, the mayor of Danbury. Boughton, a popular Republican with ambitions of his own, had this to say about his former ticket mate:
Could it be that Boughton thinks that running somebody who reminds voters of Mitt Romney again isn’t the kind of Republican who can win in Connecticut? Maybe things really will get a little more interesting as Connecticut Republicans plot their comeback.
