In Attorney General Race It’s The Trump Sycophant Versus Malloy’s Boy

The race for Connecticut attorney general could be dubbed the Hatfields versus Malloys. Sue Hatfield, a Donald Trump supporter, is a state prosecutor. State Rep. William Tong, a backer of outgoing Governor Dan Malloy, is co-chair of the Judiciary Committee. The opponents are marrying the two most unpopular pols in Connecticut to each other. In television spots Hatfield burnishes her crimefighting credentials and how she’ll take out bad guys, even though the Connecticut attorney general, the state’s chief civil lawyer, has no criminal oversight. Tong’s barbing Hatfield’s embrace of Trump’s immigration policies. The attorney general seat is open because George Jepsen eschewed reelection. Richard Blumenthal and Joe Lieberman had the job prior to Jepsen. Check out the videos.

  1. What amazes me about this race is that Hatfield, who may be very qualified for the job, is running ads about “drug lords” and getting tough on crime. This has nothing to do with the office of Attorney General. As an Assistant States Attorney you’d think she would know that.

  2. As a Bridgeport taxpayer for over 30 years and a participant in many regional community efforts of the past 50 years, does anyone see any type of diversity shown in either candidate’s promo materials? I find it strange that regionally there is a diverse population but neither of the LEGAL EAGLES has a message that provides an assurance that equal rights, fair without discrimination, will be the work of their office? Anyone else? Of course if you deem such a statement a platitude, easy to say and more difficult to deliver, I understand. However, the absence of any indication acknowledging our diversity in a small state seems a major absence. Time will tell.

  3. The Trump brand doesn’t have any cache, not any more. A work crew removed Trump’s name from a condominium located between W. 69th and W. 70th streets in Manhattan.

    In 2017 owners began fighting to take the Trump name off the building after a majority of unit holders said they favored the removal of the letters.

    The Trump Organization threatened legal action should the letters be removed. But a judge in 2017 ruled in favor of the condo owners, saying they were not required to “use the identification ‘Trump’ on the facade of the premises” and lawyers for Trump did not take any action.
