GOP Gov Candidates Debate Guns, Taxes, Corruption and TV Shows

By Arielle Levin Becker

The five Republican candidates for governor who faced off in a debate today signed a pledge to treat each other with respect, and they did: The jabs were reserved for the man each hopes to replace, first-term Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy.

Their answers varied more in degree than broad strokes on questions ranging from taxes to corruption to—with one exception—gun-control legislation. They favor local control in education over the new Common Core state standards and reducing state spending and taxes. (They consider Malloy’s proposed $55 tax rebates to be a gimmick.)

One of the widest divides came in their answers to a question about their favorite TV show. (One favors programs featuring zombies and meth dealers; another said her parents prohibited television because they thought it ruined the brain.)

Still, their answers revealed differences in how the candidates hope to position themselves in advance of the GOP’s May 17 nominating convention.

The debate, held at the Mark Twain House and Museum in Hartford, was sponsored by The Hartford Courant and FoxCT, and will be televised at 10 a.m. Sunday.
