In political news, Bridgeport Democratic leaders have endorsed Malloy as their delegate selection approaches Monday night. Bridgeport is the state's largest city and
At this point I think Malloy's going to win the convention. If DeStefano doesn't have the more liberal cities, what does he have? If the cities (New Haven excepted) go strongly for Malloy, the towns will follow.
The issue seems to be electability:
"We are proud to support Dan Malloy in his run for Governor," [Bridgeport DTC chairman John] Stafstrom said. "It's time for Democrats to line up behind the candidate who can win in November." (Bridgeport)
At this point, Malloy has done a good job of quietly (and not-so-quietly) persuading Democratic leaders that he could do a lot better against Rell than DeStefano, and that he's a more stable, reliable and traditional candidate.
The primary, of course, is another matter, although a huge amount of pressure will be brought to bear on the convention loser to drop out so Democrats can face Rell as a united front. The fundraising numbers for this quarter are going to be revealing: DeStefano's only raised about $150,000 so far, although he might manage 300K or so. I know this because the DeStefano campaign put out a release about reaching $3 million on March 22nd: they were at $2.84 million according to a January 10th press release about the last quarter of 2005.
DeStefano does have the advantages of having wider name recognition and more cash on hand (probably near $2 million) than Malloy.
