A Herbst Gets Dan Drewed in Trumbull.

Some headwinds in Trumbull Tuesday night for Dan Drew Tim Herbst. The Republican gubernatorial hopeful’s potty mouthed mother went down to emphatic defeat in the local town committee election. The matriarch of the famously litigious clan was one of just two hopefuls who failed to win a seat on the local party organization committee. Herbst’s father was able to claim a seat.

The local ruckus came the week after candidate Herbst posted an anemic $21,000 in fourth quarter fundraising, leaving the former first selectman lagging behind rivals with less experience in raising money for a statewide race.
