Fogarty Returns Dufault’s Campaign Contribution

Carroll Andrew Morse

Let’s credit Lieutenant Governor Fogarty for doing the right thing. According to Katherine Gregg in today’s Projo

After being on the receiving end of another of Dufault's televised barbs, the Democrats' own likely candidate for governor next year -- Lt. Gov. Charles J. Fogarty -- returned a $1,000 campaign contribution to Dufault.

Not happy with what Dufault had to say about his campaign, Fogarty said he also thought it "appropriate" to return Dufault's money "to make very clear that there is no support from me in any way shape or form of what happened with respect to the governor."

Will Sheldon Whitehouse (who has a lot more money to start with) and James Langevin follow Fogarty’s example?

Can't help but wonder if Fogarty would be so inclined to give back the money and make the comments he has on this if Dufault hadn't ripped him on that show?

Guy Dufault has done more to hurt Fogarty's chances than any Republican could ever do.
