HARTFORD, Conn. – It’s less than 80 days before the November election and Republican gubernatorial candidate Tom Foley says he’s still working on his urban strategy.

Without giving too much of his strategy away, Foley acknowledged that he plans to focus on the state’s cities.

“The fate of our cities will be the fate of our state,” Foley said several months ago.

But it’s also a political calculation. The Democratic Party machines in cities like New Haven, Bridgeport, and Hartford gave Democratic Gov. Dannel P.  Malloy his 6,404-vote margin of victory in 2010. Foley acknowledged that he needs votes in those cities in order to win, but what exactly will his urban strategy look like?

Foley should just pack it in. This will be a repeat, with Malloy winning by a small but comfortable margin. Easy to paint Foley as an out of touch one percenter — the Republicans in CT really do have a death wish.
