Malloy Enabler Ned Lamont Embraces, Then Tries To Hide His Support For Malloy’s Toxic Policies In Connecticut

This isn’t the first time Lamont has stood behind Malloy’s agenda...

As he doubles down on Failed Governor Dan Malloy’s high-tax, anti-jobs policies, Connecticut Democrat gubernatorial candidate Ned Lamont is desperately trying to avoid being burdened with Malloy’s toxic brand. When asked recently about Malloy’s alarming unpopularity in an interview with The University of Connecticut’s Daily Campus, Lamont tried to run away from his party’s leader, claiming “I’m not Dan Malloy’s third term.”

But, in the very next question, Lamont was asked if he agreed with Malloy’s latest fee hike – a statewide tolling proposal – and he put his full-throated support behind the idea. This isn’t the first time Lamont has stood behind Malloy’s agenda, he’s been touting similar fee hikes through tolling for months, saying he would make them “a priority from day one.” And in 2010, Lamont endorsed Malloy, pledging “to do everything to unite” behind his governorship.

Ned Lamont’s attempt to run away from Dan Malloy while at the same time embracing his tax-and-spend policies not only shows how worried he is about being associated with the failed governor’s toxic brand, but also proves that he will say anything to win an election. Voters will quickly realize that Lamont is just another Malloy Enabler, committed to continuing his high-tax, anti-business policies for another four years.
