McKinney pools funds in governor race


HARTFORD (AP) — Senate Minority Leader and Republican gubernatorial candidate John McKinney says he’s officially teaming up with former U.S. Comptroller David Walker to pool funds to qualify for public campaign financing.

They said their joint campaign would file an application for public financing on Wednesday. McKinney and Walker each received enough support at last month’s Republican State Convention to run in the Aug. 12 primary. McKinney is challenging the party’s endorsed candidate for governor, Tom Foley. Walker is challenging the party’s endorsed candidate for lieutenant governor, Penny Bacchiocchi. Groton Town Councilor Heather Somers is also a lieutenant governor candidate.

State officials must determine whether McKinney and Walker raised the $250,000 in small contributions needed to receive approximately $1.25 million for the primary.
