Foley’s Four Frontrunners

 Eyewitness News has learned former ambassador Tom Foley, the frontrunner in the  race for the GOP gubernatorial nomination is vetting four women in the search for a running mate.    Sources on the condition of anonymity,  told me the four are Avon businesswoman Lisa Wilson-Foley,  State Representatives Pam Sawyer of Bolton,  Penny Bacchiochi of Somers and Marilyn Giuliano of Old Saybrook.     Wilson-Foley, Sawyer, and Bacchiochi would not comment, a message has been left for Giuliano. 

A spokeswoman for Foley said “there is a process in the place to choose a candidate for lieutenant governor, but no names to make public yet.”

Our WFSB Republican political analyst Brian Flaherty said ” it is no accident legislative leaders would be looked at seriously.   It would be a good blend  of an outsider with Tom’s strengths  and someone who knows the ways of the state capitol.”    Looking at the list, one veteran GOP politico wouldn’t make a prediction but remarked  ” Bacchiochi has spark.”   

Stay tuned.
