STRATFORD, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut Republican gubernatorial candidate John McKinney says the party’s endorsed candidate, Tom Foley, isn’t being specific enough.

When announcing his own proposal for tackling state deficits and cutting taxes, McKinney likened Foley’s plan to a blank piece of paper.

McKinney sad Foley’s responses on the issues are “often, if not always, vague.” McKinney said he has warned Republicans they need a candidate with detailed plans if they hope to defeat Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy in November.

Foley says he’s been very specific about his plans to boost the state’s economy, for example. He proposed a sales tax cut, elimination of the business entity tax and a review of all taxes.

Foley says criticism of him not being specific enough is a “classic hit that somebody puts on their opponent.”
