Mark Boughton Formally Withdraws from Governor's Race

Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton will announce his 2014 election plans.

Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton has formally withdrawn from the Republican primary race for governor.

After announcing his intention to leave the race on June 18, he filed a letter with the Secretary of State's Office, received June 26, asking to be removed from the Aug. 12 primary ballot.

"It's been my honor to seek Connecticut's highest statewide office," Boughton said in a statement a week and a half ago. "However, I now believe it is time to suspend my candidacy and call for party untiy behind the endorsed Republican candidate, Tom Foley."

Foley's main remaining contender in the primary is State Sen. John McKinney (R-28), the minority leader in the State Senate.
