HARTFORD, Conn. – NEW LONDON — During his first gubernatorial debate appearance, third-party candidate Joe Visconti used nearly every question to try to get Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and Republican challenger Tom Foley to debate projected state budget deficits.

Thursday night’s one-hour debate at New London’s Garde Arts Center was the former West Hartford town councilman’s first time on stage with his major party opponents and he sought to shift the event’s focus to a $1.278 billion budget deficit the state is projected to face in fiscal year 2016.

“I have not heard that discussed on this stage and this is why I am here. We have three tidal waves coming,” he said.

    Absurd to put Visconti on stage with the two candidates who actually have a chance at winning.

  2. Independent Voice

    With Gov. Malloy rated as the worst governor in the country, it’s time that Visconti get out of the race and endorse Foley. CT can not afford another four years.

    I wish there was a category for “None the above.” Malloy fiscal’s policies are spend now, worry about it later and Foley can’t wait to slash and burn.
