Bacchiochi apologizes, Walker accepts

HARTFORD, Conn. –State Rep. Penny Bacchiochi apologized Friday night to her Republican opponent David Walker for allegations she made against him on a radio show earlier this week.

Bacchiochi hinted on a radio show that Walker was making comments about her biracial marriage in order to win delegate support for this weekend’s convention. The two are vying for the Republican nomination for lieutenant governor and by Friday night they issued a joint statement in an attempt to put the incident behind them.

“Neither Dave Walker nor his campaign made any insensitive remarks toward me or my family,” Bacchiochi said. “I apologize to Dave and his family. Dave and I have met and agreed to put this matter behind us, and to focus on the critical work of the convention.”

Walker accepted the apology.
