HARTFORD, Conn. (CBSNewYork) — Tom Foley’s conservative candidacy appealed to the bulk of Connecticut Republicans voting in Tuesday’s gubernatorial primary. But heading into a rematch against incumbent Democratic Gov. Dannel Malloy in November, Foley will have to broaden his base.
In an interview with WCBS 880 Connecticut Bureau Chief Fran Schneidau, political analyst Gary Rose said Foley will also have to be specific when it comes to the issues.
“It’s going to be a very different election for him, and in order to win this, he’s going to have to really start addressing very difficult questions in a very clear and articulate and certainly detailed manner,” Rose said.
