    Decision 2014: General Election Challengers

    Hear from the gubernatorial challengers on this week’s episode of “Decision 2014.”

    Tom Foley and Heather Somers share how their business and public experience will benefit the state if they’re elected. The GOP primary winners speak with George Colli in their first joint and only one-on-one post-primary interview.

    Also, potential third-party candidates Joe Visconti and Jonathan Pelto join Gerry Brooks in a spirited conversation on why they are more than just “spoiler” candidates.

    The conservative Visconti and liberal Pelto are awaiting word on whether they received enough signatures to earn a spot on the November ballot. Their entrance into the governor’s race could have a significant impact on its tone and outcome.

    In the third segment, CT Mirror’s Mark Pazniokas and CT News Junkie’s Christine Stuart analyze the primary night results and where the races go from here.
