HARTFORD, Conn. – Based on past primary data, Secretary of the State Denise Merrill predicted voter turnout in Tuesday’s Republican primary will be around 25 percent.

“I think 25 percent will be the high mark,” Merrill said Monday. “I’m thinking it will be pretty quiet.”

She said it’s her impression that people weren’t paying any attention to the Republican gubernatorial contest between Sen. John McKinney and Tom Foley “until about two days ago.”

Merrill opined that the televised debate on Sunday generated some interest, “otherwise I would have said this would be a really low turnout.”
