These endorsements came after months of candidate debates around the state and visits by the candidates to Bethel. (Click here to find the complete list of endorsements.)
Because of the large number of gubernatorial candidates, special rules were adopted at the convention stating that a candidate must receive at least 8% of the vote to move to the second round. The remaining candidates then had to garner at least 15% of the vote to move to the third round. By the third round, three out of the original eight candidates remained: Boughton, Tim Herbst, and Steve Obsitnik.
Beeble explained that the third round of voting was very close between Boughton and Herbst. Obsitnik’s delegates switched to one of the remaining two candidates, and some of Boughton’s and Herbst’s delegates switched back and forth. Eventually Senator Toni Boucher, Convention Secretary, called upon town delegations to report their vote tallies by Congressional district, at the end of which Boughton had over 50% of the vote. When Boucher called for a motion to close the balloting, Herbst supporters voiced their desire for another opportunity to switch votes. Boucher continued with her motion, but unable to record an accurate voice vote due to the large number of people in the room, Boucher ordered everyone except the delegates and the media to vacate the convention hall. Boucher then asked those in favor of closing the balloting to stand and be counted. The majority voted in favor of the motion, which was in accordance with the convention rules. Boughton thus secured the Republican endorsement.
Will Boughton become the party’s candidate? It depends on whether any other candidate chooses to compete in the August 14 Republican primary. In all likelihood, some of his opponents will file the paperwork to trigger a primary. Anyone who garnered at least 15% of the convention vote is automatically qualified to participate in the primary, and any other candidate who receives enough signatures (approximately 8,000) and petitions the Secretary of the State may also participate.
To sum up the convention experience, Beeble said, “Republicans were fortunate to have many good candidates for governor this year. We supported Boughton. We have known him a long time. He was very successful in last election for mayor. He’s been the Mayor of Danbury for 14 years and a state representative before that. so he has lots of experience. He has been very good at holding down taxes and governing Danbury, which is one of the fastest growing cities population-wise in the state.”
