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."
