Sen. Senate Minority Leader John McKinney challenged his fellow Republican gubernatorial candidates to a series of 10 debates before the May 17 nominating convention.
“Connecticut Republicans deserve the opportunity to ask questions and hear first-hand from the candidates they will choose between for the Republican nomination,” McKinney said. “The nomination should not be decided by 30-second television ads, three sentence sound bites, and glossy oversized mail pieces.”
The number is ambitious, especially in the middle of a legislative session.
But Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton, one of the four Republican candidates, said he’s up for 20 debates.
“Make it 20. I’m in,” Boughton said.
