HARTFORD, Conn. – The Working Families Party endorsed Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman Tuesday, ensuring the governor will appear on two ballot lines during the November election.

The third-party’s cross-endorsement helped Malloy secure a narrow victory over Republican Tom Foley in 2010. Four years later, Lindsay Farrell, the party’s executive director, said he has again earned the WFP endorsement for his support on issues like paid sick leave, increases in the state minimum wage, tax policies, and organized labor policies.

“Governor Malloy has been a champion for working and middle class families and the uninsured,” she said in a statement. “He has been a critical ally on a number of important issues to our party, and has earned our support for another term.”

    No doubt a “major victory” for the Governor. Cause for celebration by City Democrats.
