Nobody yet... I need to learn more about these candidates. In last night's debate, though, Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton sounded pretty good to me... he sounded the most like a conservative. Does anyone know much about him?

NBC Channel 30 is running the RAT debate tonight at 7pm (6 RAT candidates). I won't see it, as we'll be en route to Washington DC...

I refer to the GOV race as “The Big Muddy” .... no reason for me to get into that swamp. It’s a game for the insiders.

So I’ll support the guy who comes out of it as the nominee. Boughton is obviously my guy, so I will interested to see whether he endorses Fedele or Foley when/if he drops out. In the meantime, the rule I am following is: avoid “bad mouthing” any of them.

I'm undecided also. I watched the OP(formerly the GOP)debate. No one candidate stood out enough for me to support but Boughton sounded the best out of all of them. He has tried to rid Danbury of illegal aliens in the past.

Yeah, my gut has me leaning Boughton, too. We need to get someone not attached to the current administration, that’s for sure.

yea, Newington mayor is in!

bizarre debate to watch, 8 candidates. Citizen candidates, standing up there with Foley & Fedele, etc. No mud-slinging among them, however.

Could be 8 speeches at the convention, et al. Is the big show down going to be Fedele vs. Foley in a knock down, drag out primary?

I met Boughton tonite. TUE.

he is a superstar. Extraordinary gift at creating a rapport with audience. He is a once in a generation talent. In CT terms.

Thanks for the info on Boughton. Think he has a chance? Good campaign coffers?

Which means the establishment GOP will find a way to squash him like a bug, just like they did with Bret Schundler in NJ.
