RGA Statement on Failed Governor Dan Malloy’s Decision To Not Seek Re-Election in Connecticut

WASHINGTON D.C. – The Republican Governors Association released the following statement regarding the announcement that DGA Chairman and Connecticut Governor Dan Malloy will not run for a third term in 2018:

“After years of pushing destructive anti-jobs, high-tax policies that have forced businesses and residents to flee the state in large numbers, Failed Governor Dan Malloy’s toxic legacy will leave Connecticut worse off,” said RGA Communications Director Jon Thompson. “Malloy’s decision to not seek re-election creates a top pick-up opportunity for Republicans in 2018 and represents yet another failed recruiting effort for the DGA. As the most unpopular Democrat governor in the country, Connecticut gave up long ago on any hopes of effective governance from Malloy, and now Malloy is giving up on Connecticut.”
