HARTFORD, Conn. – Republican gubernatorial candidate John McKinney will explain how he plans to eliminate the state income tax for middle earners during press event Thursday morning, according to his campaign.

McKinney is running in an Aug. 12 primary race against Republican convention-endorsed candidate Tom Foley. He included the goal of ending the income tax for middle income taxpayers by 2017 on his website as a bullet point in a general outline of his budget plan.

It was not clear Wednesday what range of income tax brackets McKinney and his running mate David Walker would eliminate or how they would fill the resulting budget shortfall. Even without cutting revenue, the state budget is projected to be $1.4 billion in deficit next year.
