The Weston Republican Town Committee (RTC) in a special meeting on Wednesday, April 20 voted to endorse August Wolf for U.S. Senate.
August Wolf, a Stamford businessman, is a cum laude graduate of Princeton University with a degree from the Woodrow Wilson School of International Affairs. He competed in the shot put at the 1984 Olympic Games and went on to found the U.S. Athletic Trust which helps support college graduates training for the Olympics.
RTC Chair Bob Ferguson said,“The Weston RTC is proud to endorse August Wolf for the Republican nomination in the U.S. Senate race to challenge Dick Blumenthal in November. August is an impressive Olympic athlete with a successful business career and a real passion for supporting the Constitution…the same Constitution that Blumenthal has worked to undermine and weaken throughout his political career. Senator Blumenthal has received a guaranteed paycheck from the taxpayers for over 30 years. It’s time for the residents of Connecticut to recognize that we haven’t gotten what we paid for. August Wolf is the right man at the right time to replace a career politician like Blumenthal.”
Wolf announced his candidacy for U.S. Senate a year ago and since then, has focused all his time on winning the November election. Until recently, Wolf was the only Republican in the race. State Representative Dan Carter (R-Bethel) and Darien businessman Jack Orchulli are also vying for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate, which will be determined at the State Convention on May 9. Any candidate who receives 15% of the vote is entitled to primary on August 9.
The Weston Republican Town Committee meets on the second Tuesday of each month at Weston Town Hall. The public is welcome to attend. For more information, go to www.westonrtc.org
