On Third Try, Foley Wins Public Financing for Campaign

By Mark Pazniokas

It took three tries and another round of fundraising, but Republican Tom Foley’s application for the public financing of his campaign for governor was approved today by the State Elections Enforcement Commission.

The commission also approved applications for Attorney General George Jepsen, a Democrat, and Heather Bond Somers, one of three Republican candidates for lieutenant governor.

Foley had twice failed to meet the qualifying threshold of $250,000 in individual contributions of no more than $100, but he exceeded the mark after submitting $16,549 in additional donations. The application of his opponent in the GOP primary, Senate Minority Leader John P. McKinney of Fairfield, will be considered next week.

Foley, 62, a Greenwich businessman who largely self-funded his unsuccessful 2010 campaign, now is entitled to a $1,354,250 million grant for the Aug. 12 primary. If he wins, Foley will get $6,500,400 for the general election, the same as Gov. Dannel P. Malloy.
