Surrounded by supporters, Tom Foley, the Republican candidate for governor, cast his ballot Tuesday morning before the sun even came up at the Bendheim Western Greenwich Civic Center.
Walking into the polling place with his wife, Foley said he was cautiously confident about the race.
“I’m feeling good,” said Foley. “But you never want to be overconfident.”
After casting his ballot, Foley said he was struck by the sense of “excitement and enthusiasm,” of voters this year as he campaigned. If elected, Foley said creating jobs and turning around the economy were his number one priorities.
Also at the civic center to support Foley was Scott Frantz, Republican state senator seeking re-election for the 36th district. “I wanted to come and see our future governor,” Frantz said.
State Reps Fred Camillo, (R-151) and Livvy Floren, (R-149), who are both seeking re-election, were also there.
“It’s pretty cool to have a guy from your town running for governor,” said Camillo.
