Martha Dean could take her campaign for governor all the way to the primary. That’s the word from the attorney from Avon, who taped an interview at WFSB that aired Sunday on Face the State. Dean told me if she does well at the convention, she will march on to August. Read on for the link to the video of the interviews.
The two-time Republican nominee for attorney general also talked about what made her decide to run for governor: last week’s Quinnipiac University poll showing Governor Malloy and 2010 nominee Tom Foley neck-and-neck.
“I like Tom Foley but I am worried….Governor Malloy has high negatives even with his own party and it concerns me to see Foley neck and neck with Malloy I feel he should be way ahead.”
Dean called on another candidate who did poorly in the poll to drop out.
We also discussed her call to resurrect a hot issue from the 1994 campaign, repealing the income tax. I also gave Dean a chance to clarify her stance on the Newtown hoax story that she posted on Facebook last year that led to her being roundly criticized.

Thanks to everyone who took our poll. It was not scientific and there were some bugs. Some folks voted more than once, actually several thousand did. Thanks for partaking!
