DANBURY, Conn. – In an effort to get his running mate on the primary ballot, Republican candidate for governor Mark Boughton of Danbury is offering petition circulators $2 for each valid name collected, according to the CT Mirror .

Boughton, the Republican mayor of Danbury, needs to collect 8,190 signatures by 4 p.m. June 10 to get Shelton Mayor Mark Lauretti on the ballot.

According to state law, only registered Republicans can distribute the petition. Boughton’s campaign said it has received 1,000 signatures so far.
