HARTFORD, Conn. – Gov. Dannel P. Malloy laid into his newly anointed Republican opponent Wednesday night before an audience of about 1,000 Democrats at the party’s annual Jefferson Jackson Bailey fundraising dinner.

Malloy was joined by Democratic governors from New Hampshire and Delaware at the dinner held at the Connecticut Convention Center. Tickets to the event went for about $185 a plate.

The event served both as pep rally, where Democrats lauded policies Malloy passed during his first term, and as the first round of what is shaping up to be a contentious rematch between Malloy and his 2010 Republican rival, Tom Foley, who again received his party’s gubernatorial nomination Tuesday.

During his 19-minute speech, Malloy said Foley had spent the last three years rooting for Connecticut’s failure.

    The notion that Malloy has made CT a “trendsetter”‘for the rest of the country would be frightening if it weren’t so laughable. Our economy is just about dead last — let’s hope the rest of the country doesn’t get on CT’s economic bandwagon! Malloy will win — but not because of any trendsetting. He will “Mitt” Foley.
