The Fairfield Republican Town Committee Tuesday night endorsed Bridgeport resident David Walker for governor giving the former U.S. Comptroller General a delegate boost heading into the GOP state convention May 11-12. The endorsement comes after an appeal from former State Senator John McKinney, who represented the town for years, to support former Trumbull First Selectman Tim Herbst. McKinney and Walker were a statewide campaign team four years ago.
From the Walker campaign:
Last night the Fairfield RTC endorsed Professional Problem Solver Dave Walker for Governor. Walker won with 64% of the vote on the second ballot. As a result, Walker not only won the endorsement of the Fairfield RTC, but he also picked up 15 delegates for the Republican Convention.
“Our campaign’s momentum is building at just the right time,” Walker said. “I’m thrilled to earn the support of the Fairfield RTC. Our message is simple, but true. We are the best positioned to win in November and have the proven ability to fix our great state.”
