Connecticut Republicans to vote in primary on Tuesday

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 08/12/2014 - 20:31

Connecticut Governor Malloy offers rebuttal regarding remarks made by Louisiana Governor Jindal following National Governors Association event hosted by U.S. President Barack Obama at the White House in Washington(Reuters) - Connecticut Republicans went to the polls on Tuesday to choose a candidate to take on the state's Democratic incumbent governor, Dannel Malloy, in the November elections. Tom Foley, a Greenwich businessman and former ambassador to Ireland whom Malloy narrowly defeated four years ago, is facing off against John McKinney, the minority leader of the State Senate. The Hartford Courant has endorsed McKinney, whose district includes Newtown, for the Republican nomination, in part because it said he has the trust of Democrats, who will almost certainly hold onto their majority in the state legislature. Malloy is hoping to turn his response to the mass shooting in late 2012 at a Newtown, Connecticut, elementary school, which left 20 children and six adults dead, into a strength.
