In Connecticut, John McKinney says he won’t drop out of next month’s GOP primary for governor. His rival the party-endorsed candidate Tom Foley made the suggestion earlier this week.

The Republican primary for Connecticut governor has taken on a feisty tone. Greenwich businessman Tom Foley and state Senator John McKinney questioned one another's fiscal values in a debate on Thursday.

Connecticut’s largest union endorsed Democratic Governor Dannel Malloy for a second term on Wednesday. The endorsement comes even though Malloy has had some tough negotiations with state employee unions during his term as governor.

Connecticut Democrats endorsed Governor Dannel Malloy to run for a second term and state Republicans endorsed their 2010 candidate Greenwich businessman Tom Foley to challenge Malloy again. But the stage is not quite set for a rematch.

Connecticut legislative leaders agreed on Wednesday that it’s important to keep high paying jobs in the state. But they don’t agree on the best way to do that. At an event hosted by the Business Council of Fairfield County, Republican House Minority Leader John McKinney and Democratic Senate President Donald Williams disagreed about the wisdom of providing millions of state funds to keep hedge fund Bridgewater Associates in the state.
