DeStefano and Malloy invade Danbury

(This is a partial cross posting from Hat City Blog. Since the convention is fast approaching, I thought it would be great to show some video highlights of both candidates attempt to attract delegates at the Danbury DTC last week).
With the convention fast approaching, Democratic candidates are traveling across the state meeting delegates at the various monthly town committee meetings. Since both candidates know that in this tight primary race and since every delegate votes counts, it came to no surprise that both Stamford Mayor Dan Malloy and New Haven Mayor John DeStefano paid a visit to the Democratic Town Committee and each candidate made their case to the committee while looking for support from the public.

It was a rare chance to see both candidates in person and it gave the committee and the public who attended the meeting a opportunity to hear each candidate make their case get them to answer questions on a wide range of topics. If you couldn't make the meeting, don't worry because we recorded the entire meeting just for you.

Here are some video highlights from both candidates:
