RGA Launches Digital Campaign Against Malloy: “All Talk and No Action”

The Republican Governors Association (RGA) is mobilizing against Gov. Dan Malloy (D-Conn.) early in the cycle, as Malloy considers a third term.

On Friday, the Republican Governors Association (RGA) launched a digital campaign targeting several Democratic governors, including Gov. Dan Malloy (D-Conn.):

The campaign will mainly focus on six Democrat governors who are eligible for re-election in 2018 or serve in DGA leadership: Dan Malloy in Connecticut, Gina Raimondo in Rhode Island, Tom Wolf in Pennsylvania, Kate Brown in Oregon, Jay Inslee in Washington and Terry McAuliffe in Virginia.

The campaign was first reported in Politico‘s Morning Score.

When asked why the RGA is targeting Malloy, RGA Communications Director Jon Thompson said, in an emailed statement to Reclaim Connecticut:

“Failed Democrat Gov. Dan Malloy’s eagerness to hike taxes and drive business out of his state continues to put Connecticut at an economic disadvantage. Malloy talks a big game on jobs, but as the people of Connecticut know very well, he is all talk and no action. Malloy’s policies are hostile to job-growth and will continue to drag Connecticut down.”

Malloy has not yet ruled out running for a third term as governor.
