GOP leader and undeclared candidate for governor John McKinney told a meeting in Bristol last night that Gov. Dannel Malloy’s budget has no support among his colleagues. The Courant’s Don Stacom reports:
In remarks at a forum on state spending Thursday, the top Republican in the state Senate predicted that Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s proposed budget would fail in a landslide if it were put to a vote by legislators.
“I’d love to be on the Senate floor if this went to a vote — I’m not sure he’d get one vote,” Minority Leader John McKinney told a crowd of several dozen at the library downtown.
