Professor Khalilah L. Brown-Dean

Khalilah L. Brown-Dean, associate professor of political science at Quinnipiac University, is available to discuss potential Republican gubernatorial candidate Tom Foley’s targeting of voters outside of Connecticut.

“I was shocked. I’ve never heard of a politician, a potential candidate, trying to import voters from another state much less another city based on the promise of possibility of running in the future,” Brown-Dean said. “I think what Foley wants to do is to show that what is important to him may be important to people beyond Connecticut. But I think it really loses site of the difference between what a mayor can do and a governor can do and the real issues that separated voters in that New York mayoral debate are not really the same for people in Connecticut.”

To arrange an interview with Brown-Dean, please call John Morgan, associate vice president for public relations at Quinnipiac, at 203-206-4449 (cell).
