Malloy picks Glassman as his number two

From Dan Malloy's press release:

Democratic candidate for governor Dan Malloy, Stamford's mayor, today announced his selection of Mary Messina Glassman of Simsbury as his running mate.

Malloy will make the official announcement at a press conference with Glassman in Hartford this afternoon.

"Mary Glassman has dedicated her life to public service, working hard to make our state a better place," said Malloy. "She has experience in state government and as a local elected official. She will be a tremendous partner to me, both in this campaign and governing this state, and I am proud that she will join my ticket as our candidate for Lt. Governor."

"Mary began her political career by pulling off a stunning political upset by beating an incumbent Republican to win an office that no Democrat had won for decades -- and I know that together she and I are going to do it again!" said Malloy.

[...]

"I have been impressed with Dan's vision for the future of Connecticut and by his record as Mayor of Stamford," said Glassman. "I am proud to join his ticket because I believe Dan Malloy has both the ideas and the track record of getting results that we need in our next governor -- and I believe he is the one candidate who can win against Gov. Rell and restore Democratic values to the Governor's Office."
