Foley: “Why do I need a specific example?”

Hartford, CT – Yesterday, Tom Foley sat down with the Hearst Connecticut media editorial board to make his case to be Governor of Connecticut. Instead, Foley is showing Connecticut voters what it’s like to run a campaign for Governor devoid of details, plans, or any specifics.

“But the Republican frontrunner…offered few details in a meeting Wednesday in Bridgeport with the editorial boards of Hearst Connecticut Media, including The News-Times, Connecticut Post, The Advocate of Stamford and Greenwich Time.”

ON TRANSPORTATION: “Foley declined to say whether he would reduce mass transit funding and possibly trigger an increase in fares on Metro-North Railroad’s New Haven Line.”

ON GUNS: “He declined to say whether he supports the prohibition of ammunition magazines that hold more than 10 bullets.”

“Asked whether he approved of the prohibition against ammunition magazines that hold more than 10 bullets, Foley again declined.”

“Pressed further on the issue of whether he supports the ban on high-capacity magazines, Foley said ‘I’m not going to answer that question.’”

ON JOBS AND BUSINESS:“He would not give an example of the onerous state regulations that might have stifled a particular company.”

“But asked by editors to name a case in particular, Foley declined. ‘Why do I need a specific example?’ he replied.”
