Malloy looks like fresh air, maybe!! What is his position on giving voters the right to referendum? That will be a signal if he really is "different".

The political class abhors citizens having these rights.

Voters having any RIGHTS...??? Are you out of your mind...???

No self-respecting politician would EVER agree to allow themselves to be held ACCOUNTABLE...!!!

Bite your tongue, before one of those political lackeys comes and cuts it out.

Malloy IS a breath of fresh air. I don't know where he stands on the Constitutional Convention, but that's water over the dam at this point. It won't be on the ballot for another 10 years. In the meantime, we need a governor who's got some vision, some creativity, some backbone and an ability to say no to the special interests. Take a look at the city he's run - Stamford - compared to another possible candidate, DeStefano, and that slum New Haven that he runs. Malloy has great potential. If people get to know him, they'll vote for him. Amann ruined his chances when he first accepted, then turned down that six-figure job the new Speaker of the House created for him. And Bysziewicz ... geez, can you imagine listening to that nasaly whine for four minutes, let alone four years?

This guy is obnoxious and full of himself. We don't need another egomaniac in office.

Remember taxpayers of CT this greaseball got free work on his house. He lives in a multi-million mansion on Long Island Sound. Oh from where does the money come

I am SO glad Malloy is planning a run. Sign me up! MJodi has got to go and Amann is a thug.

First of all Malloy was cleared and exonerated by the republican states attorney, who actually credited Malloy for cooperating so fully. So another greaseball, please speak facts.

I met Mr. Malloy and he is a breath of fresh air. Honest, forthright, down to earth, tells it like it is and what the Dem's need. A fiscal conservative Democrat for governor for once.

If he is in the race I definately will consider him, although it has been years since I voted Dem.

Malloy is a clown. If his goals for CT are anything like what he has done for Stamford we are in trouble.
Can you imagine all of the illegals on the side of highways all over CT like they are in Stamford??

I agree with Malloy SUX. This guy is bad for CT and won't do anything original to grow jobs. He should stick to Stamford.

Finally! A ray of hope! Malloy is energetic, enthusiastic, and original. I happened to attend a speech he gave during his last run for Gov and he's got my vote. Thank you Mr. Malloy! Good luck!

We need a fresh new face. All the candidates so far, including Malloy, will not excite the voters. Someone like Denise Merrill is needed.

Amman's the clown. Check him out on YouTube threatening to "crush people like a bug if they oppose him". Malloy is an intelligent, thoughtful person who has integrity. We need someone like this, as opposed to a governor with no vision, tact, platform, backbone or juice. It's got to be a new day in CT. Look around you! We've have a poorly orchestrated republican rule for far too long.
