"Blair Witch Project" Producer Ends Campaign for Treasurer

NBCConnecticut.com

Senate minority leader John McKinney plans to run for the GOP nomination.

A partner in a Stamford investment firm who helped produce the successful independent film “The Blair Witch Project” says he's giving up his campaign for state treasurer.

Bob Eick said in a statement that he's throwing his support behind Trumbull First Selectman Tim Herbst.

Eick said he believes a Republican primary fight would diminish the party's opportunity to win in November.

Eick, who was an executive producer of the 1999 horror film, earned the right to a primary by winning the support of 29 percent of the delegates at the party's nominating convention last month.

The 33-year-old Herbst will face five-term incumbent Democrat Denise Nappier in the general election.
