No Republican primary for Senate in CT this year

There will not be a Republican primary for Senate this year after all.



Stamford resident and former Olympian August Wolf says he's suspending his campaign.



In a statement released Tuesday, Wolf said he fell short of the 8,079 signatures he needed to force a primary.



In May, state Rep. Dan Carter won the Republican nomination, but Wolf accused party insiders of lobbying against him to prevent a primary.



Wolf says he is disappointed but will help Carter in an attempt to defeat Sen. Richard Blumenthal this fall.
