“Connecticut working families won big last night. This was a race between a governor who made tough choices to bring the state back from the depths of the recession, create more jobs and invest in public education, and a corporate executive who spent his career eliminating and outsourcing jobs, and sticking it to working people. Voters made clear that they want to continue the progress made under Gov. Malloy and Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman.”
