Connecticut’s Democratic Governor Dannel Malloy and his leading Republican challenger Tom Foley are taking shots at each other following their party conventions over the weekend. The candidates are picking up from four years ago when Malloy narrowly beat Foley.
Connecticut Republicans have endorsed Greenwich Businessman Tom Foley as their candidate to challenge Democratic Governor Dannel Malloy in this year’s gubernatorial election. However, Foley still has to contend with a possible three-way primary in August.
The endorsement came on Saturday on the second day of the two-day party convention at Mohegan Sun in Unasville.
On Friday, the GOP endorsed candidates to challenge the state's five incumbent, Democratic members of the U.S. House of Representatives.
Connecticut Democratic Governor Dannel Malloy dismissed allegations of ethical lapses against his administration on Monday. The allegations were made by Malloy's 2010 GOP rival, Tom Foley, on the WFSB-TV program "Face the State' on Sunday.
