By Mark Pazniokas

Groton – Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton today stirred up the race for the Republican gubernatorial nomination, naming an early running mate, Heather Bond Somers, in a bold bid to boost his appeal to donors and delegates.

Somers, 47, is an entrepreneur, business executive and part-time mayor of Groton, home to the submarine base and one of the population centers of the sprawling 2nd Congressional District, the richest source of delegates to the Republican nominating convention in May.

Boughton’s choice is a woman with no statewide name recognition, but she was on the radar of GOP insiders as a potential candidate for secretary of the state, one of the five spots on the statewide under ticket.

The announcement is calculated to seize attention of potential delegates now considering a field that includes two candidates with an advantage in money and name recognition: Tom Foley, the 2010 nominee, and Senate Minority Leader John P. McKinney, R-Fairfield. Foley is expected to formally announce his candidacy Wednesday.
