Former President Bill Clinton visits Connecticut to support Malloy
Scott McLean, professor of political science, who attended former President Bill Clinton's appearance Tuesday at a fundraiser in New Haven for Democrats and Gov. Dannel Malloy, is available to comment on the importance of bringing a political heavyweight into the state to campaign for a candidate. Clinton's appearance comes after the Republicans brought New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie to Connecticut in July.
"Both Clinton and Christie are in our state not only to raise cash, but also to give much-needed charisma transplants to the gubernatorial candidates," McLean said. "Polls show voters just aren't enthusiastic for either (Tom) Foley or Malloy."
