HARTFORD, Conn. – At a Tuesday campaign stop with governor of Puerto Rico, Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said he is hoping Latino voters make up 7 or 8 percent of the turnout in next week’s gubernatorial election.

Voters will head to the polls next week to choose between Malloy and his 2010 Republican rival, Tom Foley. On Tuesday, Malloy was at the Pan del Cielo bakery in Hartford with Gov. Alejandro García Padilla, meeting with patrons and taking pictures.

“I would love to see the Latino vote represent 7 or 8 percent of the whole voting population. We build it into our models at about 6 percent,” Malloy told reporters. “The governor and I had a conversation today. One of the reasons I asked him to come, and the reason he was willing to come, was to try to drive that percentage up by 1 full percent, maybe 2.”
