HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Opinions differ as to whether Connecticut will feel the ramifications of less political clout in Washington, D.C. following the election.
Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is downplaying the possible effects of a Republican presidency and Republican Congress.
Malloy says that there are always changes in administration and that Washington and Connecticut will continue to do business with each other.
But Connecticut AFL-CIO President Lori Pelletier says she’s worried President-elect Donald Trump was backed by groups that oppose many things Connecticut supports, ranging from funding for submarines to support for immigrants.
Democratic U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy says the delegation has built a “rock-solid, bipartisan base of support for the military programming” important to Connecticut.
