HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Tom Foley, the endorsed Republican candidate for Connecticut governor, says residents have responded to Gov. Dannel P. Malloy in times of tragedy such as the Newtown school shootings and the destruction caused by Superstorm Sandy.

In an interview on WVIT-TV on Sunday, Foley said people seemed to have responded to what Malloy did during the two events in 2012.

He criticized the Democratic governor for trying to lure a large hedge fund with grants, tax credits and a loan to move from Westport to Stamford. Bridgewater Associated called off its plans last month to build a new headquarters in Stamford.

Foley said Malloy’s proposal would have resulted in no new job creation in Connecticut.

Foley faces Senate Minority Leader John McKinney in an Aug. 12 Republican primary.
