McKinney To Run For Governor

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ State Sen. John McKinney says he’s planning to run for governor in 2014.

The Fairfield Republican and Senate minority leader said Thursday during a
taped interview on WFSB-TV’s “Face the State” program that he was
“unofficially” announcing his intention to challenge Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy. The program will air at 11 a.m. Sunday.

Greenwich Republican Tom Foley, a former U.S. ambassador to Ireland, has said he plans to run for governor again in 2014. Foley narrowly lost to Malloy in the 2010 gubernatorial election.

The 48-year-old McKinney has represented the 28th Senate District, which also includes Newtown, Easton and Weston, since 1999. He is the son of the late Connecticut Congressman Stewart McKinney.

McKinney will be on the WTIC afternoon show today (Friday) at 3:10pm.
