HARTFORD, Conn. – Heather Bond Somers of Groton may have been an unknown candidate for lieutenant governor several months ago, but due to some high-profile missteps by at least one of her opponents Republican voters are giving the newcomer to state politics a second look.

Sen. Joe Markley, R-Southington, who is supporting Somers’ campaign for lieutenant governor, said he only met her a few months ago and after a 20-minute conversation was convinced she would be the candidate he was supporting on Aug. 12.

Somers will face state Rep. Penny Bacchiochi and former U.S. Comptroller General David Walker on Aug. 12 in the Republican primary.
