HARTFORD, Conn. – If a Republican challenger attacks a Democratic incumbent and no one responds, does he still make a sound?

Tim Herbst, Republican candidate for state treasurer, is doing his best to find out. The Trumbull first selectman has been waging a rather one-sided campaign against five-term Democratic incumbent Denise Nappier.

“If any other candidate for public office showed this level of disengagement with the public and media they would be rightfully rebuked on the editorial pages of every major newspaper in the state,” Herbst said in a statement.

Nappier disagreed with Herbst’s characterization Monday. In a phone interview, she said that she’s always debated her opponent and is looking forward to her first community forum with Herbst. The two are scheduled to appear on Oct. 7 at the Hartford Public Library.
