President Donald J. Trump generates enthusiastic crowds at campaign rallies elsewhere, but he was rarely mentioned Saturday by Republicans at a unity rally in (Southbury) Connecticut, where activists were reminded all politics is local, and the only issues that matter are taxes and the economy.
Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton both introduced Republican gubernatorial nominee Bob Stefanowski at the rally and endorsed the candidate’s blinkered view of the campaign as revolving around a single issue–his supply-sider’s approach to slashing taxes to stimulate economic growth.
“Some people are trying to nationalize this and make this a national campaign. This campaign is not a national campaign,” said Boughton, who ran second to Stefanowski in the five-way GOP primary. “This campaign is about Connecticut. It’s about your home. It’s about your street, your neighborhood, the town that you live in.”
