DeLauro supports DeStefano

Not a big surpeise here but this could a sign that New Haven Mayor John DeStefano is the person to beat for the Democratic nod.


New Haven Mayor John DeStefano got some support today in his bid for the governor's office.

Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro threw her support behind DeStefano this morning in Hartford.

"Connecticut will elect John DeStefano its next Governor because as our citizens get to know him, they will learn that this state needs his leadership here in Hartford. That is why I am here-that is why I am proud to support him," DeLauro said

Seems like the DVD DeStefano made paid off after all. The criticism of Rell in the DVD gave DeStefano alot of press coverage earlier this year which translates into name recognition.

Dan Malloy on the other hand, has not received alot of press and Fairfield County is controlled by Republicans (I don't see Nancy Johnson backing Malloy any time soon). It's clear that DeStefano is the frontrunner right now and it might be only a matter of time until Malloy decides that he can better serve the state by keeping his role as Mayor of Stamford and bow out of the governor race.

I not saying count Malloy out, it's just that he needs find a way to get his name out there and very soon before it's too late.
