Over at MyLeftNutmeg, there is an interesting discussion about who is supporting whom in the Connecticut Governor’s race and related races. I wrote a long comment that I posted there, and which I am sharing a version of here.
A little background: In 2005, after doing a lot of work on Gov. Dean's 2004 Presidential campaign and then my wife's 2004 State Rep race, I was recruited to be Blogmaster for New Haven Mayor John DeStefano. I think it is fair to say that in 2005 and 2006 there was similar division amongst progressives between DeStefano and Stamford Mayor Dan Malloy. Malloy was coming off of some political issues that had slowed down his campaign. I lived in Stamford, I was friends with Dan, and my daughter had worked on his campaign. However, I have great respect for Mayor DeStefano as well and I accepted the opportunity to work on his campaign.
