“The election in 2018 is a lifetime away,” Gov. Malloy said. “We have, I think, 13 candidates among the Republicans and five or six candidates among the Democrats. If we all worked really hard, we might come up with the names of half of them.”
Gov. Malloy also commented on President Trump and how his actions and the actions of other Republican leaders have had polarizing effects.
“We just had the President of the United States equate people who protested segregationists, Nazis, racists with one another. Not a single Republican leader in the state condemned that statement. I won’t forget that. Hopefully, other people won’t forget that either.”
