John P. McKinney is a Republican member of the Connecticut Senate, representing the 28th district since 1999 and has served as its Minority Leader since June 2007.[1] He is a candidate for Governor in 2014, receiving enough delegates during the convention to qualify for an August primary.[2][3] McKinney's 2014 campaign is particularly focused on reducing the size of government, decreasing tax burden, and growing the economy.[4]

McKinney considered running for Congress in 2010 in Connecticut's 4th congressional district against incumbent Democratic Congressman Jim Himes.

McKinney is the son of Stewart B. McKinney,[1] a former Congressman for the Fourth Congressional District in Connecticut. He is also the grandson of Briggs Cunningham.
