(WTNH)–The Connecticut State House of Representatives is expected to hold its confirmation vote for Chief Justice nominee Andrew McDonald on Monday.
On Thursday, Governor Dannel Malloy voiced his support of McDonald, urging lawmakers to put politics aside when considering their vote.
McDonald sat before the Judiciary Committee last week for a marathon 13-hour hearing.
It ended with a tie vote in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
