Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton has formally withdrawn from the Republican primary race for governor. He announced in mid-June that he intended to leave the race.
Boughton sent his official notice to the Secretary of the Sate's office on Thursday, asking to be removed from the August 12th primary ballot.
When making the announcement that he was stepping out of the race, he threw his support behind the party's endorsed candidate Tom Foley. Foley faces a primary challenge still from Senator Minority Leader John McKinney.
