The Republican field in the Senate race has grown by one. Thomaston attorney and Marine Corps reservist Kie Westby has entered the race, announcing his plans during a taping of “Face the State,” set to air this Sunday. Westby has never held elective office, but has run for Congress and Attorney General.
Westby joins Brian K. Hill, Jason McCoy, Linda McMahon and Chris Shays in the hunt for the GOP nomination for the seat held by Joe Lieberman. During the taping he took a swipe at McMahon and Shays, citing them for the reason he decided to run.
“Linda McMahon has shown that her high expenditures really don’t lead to victory people prefer principle over her pomp Chris Shays is known as a vascillating moderate.”
Westby also had criticism for Democrats Chris Murphy and Susan Bysiewicz, and questioned Senator Richard Blumenthal’s “conspicuous silence” regarding the situation with Attorney General Eric Holder. Westby thinks Holder should resign.
