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.
