Failed Governor Dan Malloy’s Anti-Jobs Policies Continue To Drag Down Connecticut’s Economy

A new Wall Street Journal editorial describes Connecticut under Malloy as “a wholly owned subsidiary of government unions”

The RGA writes:

As Failed Governor Dan Malloy continues to lead Connecticut further into economic decline, the chances of the state electing a Republican governor to clean up his mess continue to grow. A new Wall Street Journal editorial describes Connecticut under Malloy as “a wholly owned subsidiary of government unions” where “rising taxes, the worst economy in the Northeast and unsustainable pension obligations are driving people and businesses out of the state.” The Journal also writes that the “GOP can make an excellent case to retake the governorship this year and save the state from the decline brought by progressive union governance.”

Here's more from the Wall Street Journal:

Yet in 2016 the GOP managed to pick up three seats in the state Senate, turning a 21-15 Democratic advantage into an 18-18 tie…

Mr. Malloy is the most unpopular Governor in the country, so opposing him doesn’t take much political courage…

The question is whether this show of GOP resolve is a harbinger of a 2018 electoral comeback. Democrats under Mr. Malloy have made Connecticut a wholly owned subsidiary of government unions. Rising taxes, the worst economy in the Northeast and unsustainable pension obligations are driving people and businesses out of the state. A united GOP can make an excellent case to retake the governorship this year and save the state from the decline brought by progressive union governance.
