Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton will not run for the 5th congressional seat, and instead will focus on re-election as the leader of the Hat City in the fall. During a taping of “Face the State,” the four-term Republican told me prefers to be making the decisions, saying “I get more done in one day as mayor than a congressman does in a career.” Boughton, the 2010 GOP nominee for Lieutenant Governor, also said it is too early to think about running in 2014 for governor.
The always candid and outspoken Boughton also talked about Governor Malloy. Boughton told me “we don’t have an honest broker sitting in the governor’s chair. Governor Malloy is arguably under the influence of special interest groups that he owes for being the governor.”
