Republican gubernatorial candidate Tom Foley was pulled over Monday by state police on his way home from a fundraiser for Sen. Art Linares in Haddam.

Foley’s spokesman Chris Cooper confirmed that Foley was pulled over for failing to “obey the posted limit,” also known as speeding. Foley was travelling at about 80 mph on Route 9, where the speed limit is usually posted at 65 mph.

The Democratic Party, who has been anxious to remind people of Foley’s road rage incident more than two decades ago, was mum about the speeding incident.

Kevin Rennie, a lawyer and blogger, was first to report the incident on his Daily Ructions blog.
