GOP Treasurer Candidate Gray Passes 100-Endorsement Mark

Thad Gray is one of two Republicans running for state treasurer, and announced last week that he has passed the 100-endorsement mark.

Thad Gray, a Republican candidate for state treasurer, just passed the 100-endorsement mark for his campaign, as a statewide convention approaches.

The announcement comes a few weeks after Gray’s major GOP opponent, State Sen. Art Linares (R-Westbrook), announced the endorsements of 32 of his colleagues in the state legislature.

“My successful private sector experience of almost 30 years in leading pension plan investments for teachers, firefighters, and government employees will demonstrate to voters that Republicans can restore confidence among pension holders and in the financial markets,” said Gray. “Connecticut has the opportunity to replace Dan Malloy’s disastrous administration with professional management and move forward.”

Gray’s endorsements include:

  • Six Republican Town Committees (RTCs; Bethlehem, Derby, Ledyard, North Canaan, Salisbury, and Sharon)
  • Twelve mayors, first selectman, or chairman of directors (including new endorsements from Canterbury and Somers)
  • 20 state central committee members (including three new endorsements)
  • 29 RTC chairs (including four new endorsements from Windham, Bolton, Putnam, and Salisbury)
