Heather Somers is rolling out “endorsements” from local Republicans. But the biggest endorsement in her political career? That came from failed gubernatorial candidate Ambassador Tom Foley, who says “she has a great future in politics in Connecticut” [Yale Daily News, 11/06/15]. That should be telling to the people of the 18th district.
Despite Somers’s well-documented deception and betrayal of her original running mate, Mark Boughton, Foley vigorously defended Somers’s character, calling her“an extremely straightforward and honest person.” [The Day, 05/21/14]
The voters of the 18th district can do better than the same tired policies Ambassador Tom Foley and Heather Somers put forward in 2014.
