First Republican gubernatorial debate held in Hartford
The first Republican gubernatorial debate was held on Friday, April 11, at the Mark Twain House
in Hartford.  Hosted by the Hardford Courant and Fox News, it featured five gubernatorial
candidates: Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton, Senate Minority Leader John McKinney of Fairfield,
Shelton Mayor Mark Lauretti, Avon attorney Martha Dean, and former West Hartford Town
Councilman Joe Visconti. Greenwich businessman Tom Foley, the party's candidate in 2010, did
not appear.

Topics discussed by the candidates ranged from gun control to taxes to Common Core, and each
candidate laid out their plan to resucitate the states economy which is widely held by many
studies as being among the worst financially managed states.

Connecticut Republicans are endorsing candidates for the party's slate on May 16 and 17. Some
candidates said they hope to win enough support at the convention to wage a primary.
