HARTFORD, Conn. – Upon hearing that the 15,000-member Connecticut Citizens Defense League endorsed Republican gubernatorial candidate Tom Foley Friday morning, Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy could barely contain his excitement.

“I’m shocked. I’m shocked,” Malloy said with a grin on his face.

Malloy said Foley would repeal the stricter gun laws passed post-Newtown, if a bill makes it to his desk.

“When a governor says he’ll sign a bill or he’ll sign a repeal he’s actually advocating a position,” Malloy said. “If people want to roll back regulations that have lowered crime and made children safer, and made teachers safer, and made parents safer and make communities safer … then you know, I guess they know who their guy is because he just got endorsed by an organization that advocates doing every one of those things.”

    Are the Republicans completely tone deaf on these issues? Another reason why Malloy will coast to victory this November. Connecticut really needs a viable opposition party. Absolute rule by one party in state government leads to corruption and decisions like the one to build a $600 bus lane for no one between Hartford and New Britain.
