Kiss of death or silver bullet? Dems await Foley endorsement by gun rights group

HARTFORD, Conn. – Democrats were eagerly awaiting Tuesday what they hope will be a politically-damaging endorsement of Republican Tom Foley by a state gun rights group, with one mayor accusing the candidate of selling “his soul to the devil” for support.

The Connecticut Citizens Defense League will consider endorsing Foley, the Republican candidate for governor, during its Tuesday night meeting. Foley lost narrowly to Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy in 2010 and is hoping to unseat him in this year’s rematch.

The group, which has around 15,000 members, has been intent on defeating Malloy since he signed a sweeping gun control law following the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

Before the CCDL made an endorsement, state Democrats organized a conference call where Democratic municipal leaders decried Foley, gun rights advocates, and any attempts to roll back the 2013 law.

    Another reason Malloy will beat Foley in the upcoming election. The Republicans really do have a death wish.

    And John Hamlin has a Malloy wish.
