Connecticut's dysfunctional Dems

Nicole Tardif - June 13, 2018

As yesterday’s deadline for the primary ballot has passed, the dysfunctional Democrat field to replace Governor Dan Malloy has emerged. The two likely frontrunners are Ned Lamont, a Dan Malloy disciple, and convicted felon Joe Ganim.

Let’s take a quick look at the Democrat options for August’s primary.

First, we have former Bridgeport Mayor and convicted felon Joe Ganim of racketeering and extortion fame. The New York Times’ has already provided foreshadowing of Ganim’s chances in November:

“Mr. Ganim was convicted on such a broad array of charges that a political comeback is all but out of the question, political and legal experts said…”

Our other option is Disaster Dan Malloy’s hand-picked successor Ned Lamont. Lamont not only proudly plans to raise your taxes, but will also strive to continue breaking records like Disaster Dan, which currently include:

  • CNBC ranks Connecticut as having the 4th worst infrastructure in the country;
  • Forbes ranks Connecticut as 42nd out of 50 for states to do business in;
  • And, CNBC ranks Connecticut as 33rd out of 50 states for business.

It’s no wonder Connecticut residents are more likely to support a Republican over a Democrat to replace Disaster Dan.

“In the wake of Disaster Dan Malloy’s tenure in Hartford, it’s no surprise that Connecticut voters are looking for new leadership. With Connecticut Democrats’ dysfunctional lot of gubernatorial candidates, they’re in a pickle no matter who they nominate for November’s general election.” –RNC Spokesperson Nicole Tardif
