Tom Foley: Opinion Unknown

(Hartford, Connecticut) — The Connecticut Democratic Party today released the following statement from Chairwoman Nancy DiNardo on candidate Tom Foley’s statements on Connecticut’s gun violence prevention efforts (LINK):

“Just about every time Tom Foley opens his mouth he puts his foot in it. Today’s no different. No one was trying to ‘stretch out the gun discussion,’ Mr. Foley. What the Governor and legislators were doing is something you have no experience with: lead a thoughtful discussion on a serious public policy issue. And it worked; now, Connecticut will have the toughest gun laws in the nation, and children’s lives will be saved as a result. Shame on you for figuring out a way to politicize even this issue. What’s your position on the issue? Would you sign the bill or not?”
