HARTFORD, Conn. – Republican gubernatorial candidate John McKinney rejected Thursday his primary opponent Tom Foley’s suggestion that McKinney drop out of the race and endorse him.

“We are not leaving this race,” McKinney said in a campaign statement responding to comments from Foley published in the New London Day Thursday morning.

The two candidates are competing in an Aug. 12 primary election for the Republican nomination to run against Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy.

    Malloy has the race locked up. The Republicans don’t seem capable of fielding a viable candidate. Regardless of your politics, the state needs a viable opposition party, but today that doesn’t exist. Really sad. We are a one party state.
