HARTFORD, Conn. – Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s campaign sought to defend Malloy’s economic development policies in an ad released Friday that touts a $400 million deal with United Technologies Corp. approved earlier this year.

Malloy is hoping for a repeat of the 2010 gubernatorial election, in which he defeated Republican Tom Foley. But Malloy has trailed Foley slightly in recent public opinion polls.

Foley has been critical of the tax incentives Malloy’s administration has offered employers during his first term. In an editorial published in the New Haven Register, Foley said Malloy has sought to bribe companies with “corporate welfare” rather than fix the business climate.

  1. One and Done.

    For $400 million in taxpayer money, you think we would have saved just one of the 900 jobs lost at UTC’s Sikorsky Division. The $400 million is extortion and won’t end there. This was a terrible deal for the state.
