Governor Malloy Discusses Jobs Numbers, Politics and the Newtown Report

Since Governor Dannel Malloy narrowly won the race for governor in 2010, Republicans have set their sights on 2014.

We’re still more than 14 months away from the next election, but Republican candidates are already getting in line.

Today, Governor Dannel Malloy joins us in-studio and we ask him about his re-election plans and those vying for his job.

One of the big issues, if not the biggest issue, will be the state’s economy and unemployment rate. The latest numbers show 11,500 jobs were added in the state, BUT the unemployment rate ticked up to 8.1 percent.

Governor Malloy discusses the state of the economy, a new effort to help non-profit organizations in the state, the Newtown report and more.
