The Republican state convention is two weeks away and there is no clear front runner or sense of who, if anyone, will emerge as the endorsed candidate. Sunday on Face the State our guest is candidate Dave Walker, a 2014 candidate for lieutenant governor and former U.S. Comptroller General. Walker is predicting four people will leave the convention with enough delegate support to make the primary, and there many be a few others who make it on the ballot through signatures. He also predicted that if he is the GOP nominee, he will win in November, and “with coattails.”
Walker also talked about how he feels the state continues to go in the wrong direction, and he feels Connecticut is in worse shape than a year ago because of spending, and what he would do right away if elected. Walker agreed with the Hartford Courant’s recent editorial that was critical of Governor Malloy’s decision to appoint some thirty judges. Walker called the nominations “political favors.”
