Boughton campaign confident, Herbst hoping for conservative base support


While the Mark Boughton campaign is confident that the Danbury Mayor will win Tuesday’s Primary, the Tim Herbst campaign believes low voter turnout could help the former Trumbull First Selectman secure victory.

At the La Bella Vista Banquet Hall in Waterbury, endorsed convention Republican candidate Mark Boughton will either be making a victory speech or a concession speech; but campaign staffers are confident he has put in the work to win Tuesday’s Primary.

While other candidates are concerned about low voter turnout, the Boughton campaign remains confident that he has done the work not only in this campaign, but in his previous campaigns in the past to get him to this point. Staffers believe the public knows Mark Boughton, and they are very confident.

Speaking with the Tim Herbst campaign on Tuesday, he is hoping to capture more of the conservative base. The Herbst campaign is actually hoping for a lower voter turnout, as they believe more conservative voters will come out to support him. 

Low voter turnout could wind up being the biggest story of the day. There are five people in the race in the Republican primary. If there really is low voter turnout, it’s anyone’s race to win.
