State Senator John McKinney Will Run for Governor

Lead in text: 
John McKinney is the Senate Republican leader, and is the first to announce formally in the race.
Fairfield - John P. McKinney entered the 2014 race for governor Tuesday as a moderate Republican who hopes to reach beyond Connecticut's limited GOP base and as a convert to the public financing of campaigns. "I am doing the public financing, because it is the right direction for the campaign," said McKinney, who voted against the law creating public financing in 2005.
