Romney lends support to Foley campaign

GREENWICH - Mitt Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts, campaigned for fellow Republican Tom Foley today in Greenwich.

The two men were surrounded by members of the Republican Town Committee and other residents in Greenwich as Romney spoke about his approval for Foley, the GOP hopeful for governor.

Romney said in a statement released by Foley's campaign that the former U.S. ambassador to Ireland is a smart businessman and good problem-solver who can apply commonsense solutions to Connecticut's troubles.

Foley faces Democrat Dan Malloy in the Nov. 2 election. Republican Gov. M. Jodi Rell isn't seeking re-election.
