Foley Close To Decision On Gov’s Race

WATERBURY, Conn. (AP) – Republican Tom Foley says he will soon announce whether he is making another run for governor.

Foley is holding a news conference at a VFW post in Waterbury on Wednesday afternoon.

The Greenwich man was the GOP nominee for Connecticut governor in 2010 when he narrowly lost to Democrat Dannel P. Malloy.

Foley, who is also a former U.S. ambassador to Ireland, spent more than $10 million of his own money on his losing bid.

His running mate from 2010, Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton, has already joined the field of Republican candidates that also includes Senate Minority Leader John McKinney.

Malloy has yet to announce whether he will seek a second term.
