Governor Dannel Malloy is by far one of the most media friendly politicians we’ve seen in a long time. He’s been on Face the State several times, both as governor, candidate and mayor.
Malloy narrowly lost the 2006 Democratic nomination battle to John DeStefano, but almost as soon as the numbers were counted in Governor Rell’s landslide victory over Destefano, Malloy let it be known he was thinking of running again.
In July 2008, with the election nearly two and half years away, the then Stamford mayor came on Face the State to talk about his political future. He told me a decision on running would come after the November election, and made good use of his time on television to send a message to Governor Rell.
