Foley Sets His Sights on November

By Mark Pazniokas

Waterbury – Republican Tom Foley today entered the race for governor with an appeal to urban voters and public school teachers, a general-election strategy that ignores his GOP rivals and anticipates a November rematch with Gov. Dannel P. Malloy. Image

Foley, 62, a Greenwich businessman who was George W. Bush’s ambassador to Ireland, chose a VFW post in Waterbury to formally begin his second campaign for governor, aware that Democrats hope to brand him as a wealthy, aloof Ivy Leaguer in the mold of Mitt Romney.

In brief remarks, Foley spoke directly to elements of the Democratic governor’s base, promising a partnership with cities and lavishing attention on teachers disaffected with Malloy’s idea of education reform, as well as the strong-willed governor’s style.

“We’re focused on beating the governor,” Foley said, pausing as he exited VFW Post 201 with his wife, Leslie. “I’m not taking anything for granted, but the best way to reach Republicans is to show we can beat the governor.”
