Tom Foley is picking up more endorsements as he seeks to secure the Republican Party's nomination for Governor. The 2010 candidate announced endorsements from five more town committees, including in Monroe.
Foley says these five committees join the endorsements of 70 Republican leaders across the state including lawmakers, elected officials and party chairs.
Foley is one of six candidates hoping to be nominated at the convention next month. The others are Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton, Shelton Mayor Mark Lauretti, Senate Minority Leader John McKinney, Attorney Martha Dean and former West Hartford Councilman Joe Visconti.
