HARTFORD, Conn. – Bob Eick received enough support at the convention to primary Trumbull First Selectman Timothy Herbst for a chance to challenge Democratic incumbent State Treasurer Denise Nappier in November, but he’s not sure if he’ll go for it.

“Twelve weeks ago no one knew who Bob Eick was,” he said after Saturday’s vote. “Now we have 30 percent basically of the delegates.”

Eick, a Ridgefield resident and a partner in CRT Capital Group of Stamford, said he was undecided about if he will move forward and challenge Herbst in August.

“My parents taught me that with hard work anything is possible,” Herbst said. “They also taught me to lead with honesty and integrity.”

Herbst, 33, and Eick, 51, had a few pre-convention dust ups in the news over Eick’s record in the financial services industry and Herbst’s record managing his town’s pension funds.
