Malloy & Murphy Won't Help Donovan in CT-5

Channel 3’s Susan Raff reports Governor Malloy won’t endorse House Speaker Chris Donovan in the race for CT-5, even he wins the party endorsement.   The question of an endorsement was raised, because of the governor’s recent involvement in the U.S. senate race.  The governor endorsed Chris Murphy, and suggested Susan Bysiewicz drop out for the good of the party. 

The Governor told Susan Raff he won’t get involved in the CT-5 race, and said it had nothing to with the fact that Donovan’s opponent Elizabeth Esty is married to Malloy appointee Daniel Esty, DEEP Commissioner.   

Murphy also seems to feel a primary is the best way to choose a nominee in the race for his district.  Yesterday on Face the State, he said he would not endorse Donovan, even he wins the convention tonight.

  1. Esty is roadkill. Malloy doesn’t have to make an endorsement. This problem will take care of itself. This is the chick that was against the death penalty even though the people killed and almost killed in that Home Invasion were her constituents. Because of that, she was booted out of her State Rep. seat. Now she thinks she can win Congress against a sitting Speaker of the House?
    She represents murderers very well, but victims and the people who side with them – notsomuch.
