Dan Malloy is “exploring” a run for governor. Given the events of the past week, that exploration is a bit more interesting.
Dan Malloy was most recently on Where We Live as part of our “State of the Cities” series when he was still running the city of Stamford. His decision to leave that post and start a statewide campaign backfired for Democrats there, who lost the subsequent mayoral race to Republican Michael Pavia. Given that gamble, this seems to be a time of big decisions for Malloy.
With Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz leaving the governor’s race to run for attorney general, he could benefit. But the numbers aren’t looking real good for Malloy in the latest Quinnipiac University poll. He was running far behind Greenwich businessman Ned Lamont. So, will Malloy be able to capture some of those Bysiewicz supporters by making a push now?
Today we continue our “Where We vote “ series. Specifically, we'll ask how he’ll deal with the looming state budget disaster, and miserable jobs climate that’s being left for the next governor.
