With the Republican Primary for Governor just about four weeks away, there's good news in the Mark Boughton camp.

The battle for the Republican nomination for Governor is on, and the latest poll, just released, shows Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton leading the field of primary candidates.

The survey of Connecticut Republicans has Mark Boughton with an early lead over businessmen Bob Stefanowski, and David Stemerman, former Trumbull first selectman Tim Herbst and technology entrepreneur Steve Obsitnik.

So what does all this mean for Boughton, who was the Republican front runner coming out of the Republican Convention in May?

It's a mixed bag for Boughton according to Matt Hennessy, the Managing Director of Tremont Public Advisors, who conducted the poll, he was quoted on patch.com about the latest survey:

The good news is that Boughton has held on to his front-runner status coming out of the May Republican Convention even in the face of being considerably outspent by his rivals for the nomination. The bad news for Boughton is that two of his rivals who remain within striking distance of his lead have the capability to pour millions of dollars into their campaigns over the next couple of weeks potentially eliminating his lead.

Thanks to Tremont Public Advisors, LLC, here's the official result's of their latest on line survey:
